ScrapHappy November

My little denim market bag has become old and shabby.  I need to have room for cash, cell phone and parking ticket – three things you never want to lose touch with when you’re busy and distracted at a market. I also like to wear it as a crossbody because it’s too easy for it to slip off if it’s just over one shoulder. Goodbye, tired old friend.

Hello, sweet and pretty new patchwork buddy!

Except for the blue lace, these bits were all leftovers from cushions and bedspreads. The back is old denim from a pair of jeans that are happily now far too big for me to wear, with an extra pocket for luck.

      I plan to make more next year, including some tote-sized ones. The weeks do fly, don’t they, I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of the year. In some ways, I’m really looking forward to the new one!

    Oh my goodness, I love seeing these. Not sounds like an old granny, but I proudly walked around with jeans bags in the seventies…only I never thought of adding lace etc. Now I wish I had! Cheers, Johanna

    For some reason, I haven’t been getting notifications of your posts in my e-mail. I’ll have to check out why that is happening. Cute bags. I keep thinking about making one but so far, it’s still down the list. Yours is quite cute. Inspires me to try one after the holidays. ;)

    Quite a nice new one, but I’d have been sad at discarding the old one. It took me a while to work out that a parking ticket for you is not what it is for me!

    Hi, Jill! just dropping by for a moment. Love that bag (and the old one, too). I have two end of blue jean legs that I’m planning to make into bags for myself and yesterday we went to Vernon, where my storage stuff is, and I brought home a half dozen boxes. In two of them is fabric!! So I am a happy camper!

    Am thinking of you so often and sending you plenty of Love and Light . . . and big hugs, too. Take care, my friend. ~ Linne

        Hi, Jill; it’s Boxing Day here already (just past midnight) and I was thinking of you. I’m glad you think of me at times, too. I wish you all the best in the coming year, my friend. Love and Light to you. ~ Linne
