The ubiquitous catalog season is winding down. Idly paging through one of many almost-identical catalogs full of cute-but-unnecessary items, when I see an inspiring set of tiny bags.
|Gingerbread Man - for giving cookies @ the office|
|Reindeer bag - checkered scarf and button nose|
|Noel - with a snowman face!|
|Joy - primitive tree in plaids and stripes|
Felt, felt. I don't work in wool felt, so bashing an inexpensive gift bag for being made of polyester felt is a bit unwise of me. I did start to think about a "utility fabric" I collected recently: is it a reasonable felt-substitute for crafty items like these bags?
|Yards and yards of the stuff - how could I just throw it away?|
|Seems sturdy, like it would sew up well|
Sigh. We are such a throw-away society. What useful thing can I do with this windfall raw material?
