Spring Cleaning and Crafting for House Hold Solutions !

I was cleaning the pantry out and I had all those plastic grocery bags stuffed everywhere! Oh I want one of those stupid bag holders you see everywhere.......

I had to just create one I could stand. I used burlap for the base of the bag. It sews up so nicely, I had never tried it on the machine.

I just got a rubber stamp with sheet music images on it, so I stamped some muslin w/some of Tim Holtz's tea dye Distress Ink.

It worked, but was a little plain.

On secound thought  I added some more stamped muslin and a scrape of my favorite yellow material.  A small amount of yellow tulle simply tied around the bag. Oh I am much more satisfied!

Now it is too Pretty to put in the Pantry. I think I will try useing some Vintage Hankies out of my collection next.....some simple blanket stitches.

I will keep playing with them useing more Vintage Elements so I can add them to my Etsy Store!
         Happy Spring Cleaning All,
