Fox print bag and a marathon

Last week was pretty eventful. It included some sewing, some knitting, and a LOT of running.

My latest sewing venture is this nerdy fox animal print bag. The future is going towards a ‘plastic-bag-free shopping’ experience. So why not have some fun with it!! This week I challenge you to use market bags and go shopping plastic-free. Every small step will make a huge difference.

This is a great market tote and can carry a lot of weight with its handles sewed in all the way.

This week was one year since my last Marathon in Chicago. So me and my husband have been training for the Melbourne Marathon (which was last weekend). It was an incredible experience. and usually after every marathon (this was my third one), I feel like I have it out of my system and am not sure I want to do this all over again. But this year I felt really good and am really inspired to do better for my next race, hopefully next year.

Furnishing fabric for market bags

As I get into sewing some more, I’ve really enjoyed using furnishing fabric as it is super thick for market totes. Here are the ones I’ve been working on this week.

Red gingham bag

I learnt sewing the market tote on youtube and made considerable changes to the pattern. At some point, will definitely share the pattern for it as a more detailed blog.

But here is what furnishing fabrics look like as bags. I buy these fabrics from IKEA and Lincraft. You can find their collection of fabrics online.

Dog print Blue bag

These bags are super sturdy as their handles are sewed in all the way to the base. I think that a contrast of white handles brings out the design of the bag a little more.

The idea is to be able to repurpose unused curtains into bags and use them for groceries. Reduce the use of plastic today. Let’s be more conscious towards the environment together! Please ship me some of your unused furnishing fabric and I can repurpose them into bags for you.

Coming up I have an exciting knitted shawl project to start and my first quilting project underway.

Have a great crafty weekend.
