Sew & Tell Friday (and last day to enter the giveaway!)


If you have followed me for a while, you may recall I made many large, reversible oilcloth bags for teachers' gifts last Christmas.  I discovered my younger sons' preschool teachers were using their bags for the preschool grocery shopping - carrying those super size cans of fruit as these bags were the only bags that could handle the weight.  I decided to make them a few bags to keep at preschool so they could save the wear on their personal bags.  This is an original pattern by my LQS and they carry sooo many colors and prints of the oilcloth, which is handy for me when I need a last minute gift.


To see projects others have finished today, check out Amy's Sew & Tell Friday!   AND if you haven't entered my giveaway, today is the last day... enter here.

A teacher never has enough bags for all of the toting necessary. These will be well received and appreciated. Such cute prints, too!

Great bags that you made- as a teacher I can never have too many bags it seems. We are forever hauling things back and forth to school.
