Remember the Trash Can Bag?

    I got the greatest email from Linda at Chirp .  She included photos of the Trash Bag---plus a real scrap trash bag ---that she made.  See tutorials page for my instructions.

Linda   from Chirp made a bag!
 This bag i s going to her sister who is a Girl Scout Leader.  And I love the outside pocket, which happened when she sewed the pieces together wrong.  Linda just turned it into "lemonade" and added another pocket inside.   Click over and see her other photos.....here.    I really like what she did with the extra strips for the bonus bag.  It is perfect to hold thread snips, fabric bits, or spools of thread even.
    This is probably the greatest compliment I can get.....someone is inspired by me and uses the idea to make it their own.  Great job, Linda.  Thanks, for sharing your project finishes  with me.

   I was making great headway last night stitching the rows on the colorwash while watching a movie.  And suddenly I was in the dark.  The light bulb on the Featherweight finally shone its last beam.
   I turned to Sir Old Man and said, "I can't watch TV because the light bulb is out on my Featherweight."   He calmly looked at me,  and replied, "Let me take my glasses off.  I can't hear you."   He got me that time....I laughed until I cried.  
   Laughter is good for the soul.  Happy stitching.

Oh Debbie, thank you for making my morning so bright. I also laughed until I cried. Thank you again.

That was pretty funny. : )

The bag made by Linda looks great as does her little "trash can".

Sir Old Man's statement was about as logical as yours, I guess! LOL

Great bag, plus laughter is indeed a great way to end the day, start the day and intersperse throughput the day! Here's to lot's of laughs today!! Did you get a new bulb?

That's a fantastic bag that Linda made. I still have your instructions & plan to make one some day.

Sir Old Man sure knows how to make a person laugh. What a wonderful sense of humor. I have a co-worker who likes to use the phrase "Don't look at me in that tone of voice" & that always gets a chuckle out of us.

Hope you two have a great day!

I would have loved a bag just like that one when I was a GS leader. There's always a ton of paperwork and supplies to drag around. I've been guilty of saying the same thing as your husband on occasion.

Thank you Debbie, for featuring my bag, and thanks also to your commenters for their kind words! Your instructions for the bag are very easy to follow, and a wonderful way to use up all those batting scraps. I encourage anyone to make one, they turn out so nicely.
