Love Never Dies Market Bag

This is a shopping bag made from cotton fabric and thrifted upholstery fabric.

 

It is reversible with one side burgundy upholstery fabric  and the other is a cotton print of zombies in love.  The bag dimensions are 17 inches tall, 16 inches wide, and 4 inches deep.

The pocket is 8 inches wide by 7 inches high.  There are pockets on the "inside" and the "outside" of the bag.

The strap is 2 inches wide by about 34 inches long.  It has both fabrics on it.

 

The bottom is a flat bottom which makes it more easily packed with groceries.

I have been making these bags and using them for years.  The dimensions are based off a paper grocery bag.  The only time I have had a bag fall apart was after it had been played with by a dog or has been used for over 15 years.  It was still useable after a bit of repair.

The bag is $25 plus $7 shipping.

Blue craft bag with blue flowered lining

This is a craft/project bag that I have made.  I use these bags myself for crocheting and embroidery that I wish to carry around with me.  It would work as well for other projects or crafts that you wish to carry around with you.

The bag sits about 8 inches high when it is holding work.  The top opening is 20 inches in circumference.  The bags widest dimension is about 30 inches in circumference.  There is a pocket on the outside and a pocket on the inside.  The straps are about 34 inches long but loop so there is only about 16 to 17 inches in length.  The bag hits me at the hip when I am carrying it by itself.  There is a loop closure and a pinecone button.

The bag is a dark blue linen that is lined with a blue toned cotton flower print.

The bag flattens down well for when it is not in use.

I have been told it would make a lovely evening bag so contact me if you might wish different fabrics.

The bag is $25 with $7 shipping.

Birds quilt

The quilt for sale is a nine square quilt made with 100 nine square blocks using squares that are 2.5 by 2.5 inches.  

 

This quilt is made of multi-coloured cottons but it just feels purple to me.  Many of the prints in this quilt have birds in them.  You may not see all the birds, but they are there.

The back is a thrifted cotton calicoes.

The batting is 100% organic cotton.

The quilt is machine pieced and quilted on a treadle sewing machine.  The binding is stitched on the treadle in place and then I finish it by hand.  The corners of the binding are mitered.

The quilt is approximately 52 inches by 52 inches.

The quilt is machine washable and dryable.  I wash tap cold and normally hang dry but that has more to do with washing preferences.  It is machine dryable. I always wash tap cold.  With care, I have had a quilt of this type last for over 30 years.

The price is $500 plus $20 shipping.
