A Couple of Creative Projects

Here's a couple things I worked on this month if you are thinking creatively or about recycling. I made this peg bag from leftover fabric from other projects. The hanger was made from scrape wood from Jim's shop in the basement and the hook is from a wooden hanger. Though I didn't particularly care for the finished product the peg bag (clothespin) wasn't to bad. The trouble I was having was figuring out how I wanted to do the lining. Actually the project it and of it's self doesn't' take long, thinking about how you want to make it does. LOL

This next bag was a no sew project. The bag is made of a heavy canvas that my husband acquired from a previous job. It had the company's name and etc. on it that was no longer of use. I didn't want to toss it so this is what I came up with.

I used fabric I had and heat bond, cut out shapes and ironed the patches on; I place a strip on the back side as in the front you see. Cool. I may still do more to it but I can at least use it now.

I love the bag with the sailboat! As soon as our homeschool gets out for the summer, I will have to start some creative projects! You inspire me! :0)
