a few great things

Namaste bag. I had a fun swap with Scout back in February. I got to choose something from her shop, and with so many great things it took me a while to decide. I finally chose the Namaste Bag, and am I ever happy! I am in LOVE with this bag! It has a lot of pockets for all of your "stuff". I especially love the fabric inside. Not only will I love using this bag for my everyday knitting bag, I think it will be a great travel bag. I can't wait to "stuff" it! Thanks Scout!

Book Bag.
I did not make this bag, I purchased it from Old Navy. I thought it would be a great little bag for a small project. I just loved the fabric and the silk ties that where knotted after pushed through a grommet. I think all those who sew could make this and if you don't have a grommet maker a button hole would work just as well.

Juicy Wallets.

My sister purchased these wallets, for my children as an Easter gift. How cute are they? Recycled juice boxes. I love them! As it says on the tag," wallets that make smart use of what would otherwise be pure garbage". Gotta love that!

OK-- those wallets are too cute, I saw a purse made out of old juice boxes the other day, I still might go back & get it for the "little woman" -----LOVE the bag, hmmmm maybe I can get one for Mother's Day.

Great bag!

Also loved the aprons for scout. The fabric is awesome. I am looking forward to making matching aprons for my daughters and I.

Those wallets are adorable!

I remember being super jealous of Scout's aprons...I think that may be how I found your fun adorable blog.

SUCH A NEAT THING TO HELP SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT!! JUST THINK OF ALL THE THINGS THAT WE AMERICANS THROW AWAY THAT COULD BE PUT TO GOOD USE.

These definitely are a "few great things"!! The bag from Scout is great . . I can never do without enough of those organizer-type bags with all the pockets and stuff. Love the Old Navy bag as a little project bag! And lastly . . I'm definitely getting myself one of those Juicy Wallets!! They're just too cute and a definite convo starter. :)

You always have such neat stuff to share. I love your posts!

the wallets are great - my partner was given a mouse mat for his birthday this year, made out of old tyres. You can't beat recycling :)

how is this for serindipity - I was looking at a new Flickr group for UK recycling and they have instructions for making tetrapak wallets. A bit different from yours but it would be fun to try with the kids.

ok, that last link was useless and my technical skills aren't too hot. the instructions are in a photostream called junctified if you want to look them up. There must be an easier way to do this :)

Great finds! I like the fabric on the Old Navy bag as well.

Your namaste bag is perfect for travel, knitting, weekend, everyday! Those wallets are so cute and thanks for the idea about buttonholes to substitute for grommets - I've tucked it in my head for future reference.
