Reusuable produce bags.


I can only say that I truly love my new sewing machine. It has 39 stitches! lol. I'm finally able to make things I never could have made without a newer machine I totally miss Bessie, but Charlie really is earning his keep.

Anyway, these are some reusuable produce bags I made. I found this crochet mesh in the clearance section at JoAnn's and it was only a yard. The girl gave it to me half off so 3 bucks for the yard! WOOT! I got six bags out of it with only trimmings left over. I only made four because I need more drawstrings. I used a stitch that closely resembles what a serger might produce. I filled one bag with two gatorade bottles and shook it around and it held really well. WOOT! I'm working on stocking up my etsy shop. I hope to start posting next week! YAY!

I'm currently stuck on my swaps. I really need to get them done, but they're both coming out terribly. Grr...

Congrats on the new sewing machine and awesome you all around for finding a thrifty deal, using it all, and making cool products! :)

I might email you when I have a minute about your machine. Kevin said we could use some of our wedding gift money to buy myself a sewing machine and I have no clue where to begin! I use my mom's OLD machine so I need help! :)
