Summer is a time for sipping drinks, sitting by the lake and soaking up the sun. I try to do this as often as I can because I know it’s not going to last forever. Soon the winter will be upon us and I’ll be back to curling up under blankets and knitting sweaters.. but enough about the cold.
I’ve been keeping my hands busy this summer making purses and beach bags. My latest adventure has been making market bags. We all know how important taking care of the planet is and with one simple change we can make all the difference. I chose super soft cotton yarn to make these, it’s so soft and dreamy.
Taking just one of these bags to the grocery store or farmer’s market can save up to 30 plastic bags a year. So you can imagine how many you save if you use 2 or even 3!
I made 3 crochet style bags and 2 knitted ones to far. Head over to the shop to see my knit bags- you will have to visit ReStyle in Brampton to see the crochet ones 🙂
A quick update to announce that I’ve teamed up with ReStyle Boutique in Brampton- they’ll be carrying my purses and bags ! Hooray! This is super exciting to say the least and I’ve got a bunch of new ideas coming your way. Stay tuned!!
