On March 2010, ( a year ago already ) i quit my part time job. It was a difficult decision, but in the end it was a good thing for me to leave this place. The job was hard, the pay was awful and i had to get up at 3am every morning. I still wonder sometimes if i made the right move. Not having a regular pay check is not always easy thing. I had to reajust my budget and gave my old car to younger daughter. Hubby works close by, so if i need to keep the car, that is not a problem for me. One thing you learn when you have a tight budget is to hunt for bargains.
There is a charity shop in a nearby town and at first i was on the look out mainly for china and other little decoration stuff until i started to look at a stash of wool and grabbed the whole bunch and then the bedding sheets and then ideas started to flow in my head. I found some really beautiful ones and some of them found a new life and became totes and pillow covers. I realized that creating with something old brings me a lot of satisfaction and i quickly became a real fan of charity shops.
One of the things i really love doing are tote bags of all sizes. I made this one with a bed sheet i found several weeks ago. I loved it so much when i layed my eyes on her, i grabbed it before someone did. I knew right away i would be making a bag out of it. I still have enough fabric left to make many more. Do you love tote bags as much as i do ?
