Trying to live a life of purpose and re-purpose...

Originally, my "mission" was to make a market bag that could be used at any store. I loved the idea of using reusable bags, but I always had the bag with me that had another stores name on it. So, I decided to make a market bag out of recycled fabrics that I could use at any store. I tried to design a market bag that was too cute to "forget"...which is the comment I hear most often, "I always forget to take my bag to the store". I forget my bags too, and it drives me nuts because I have like 20 bags! My reusable bags are washable, durable and environmentally friendly because I "re-purpose" drapes, shower curtains, jeans and dresses, fabric remnants, tablecloths...you name it and we try to re-use it!

That's how it started but now it has evolved to so much more...having so many little scrapes of fabric that I didn't want to waste, I had to think of something to make...that's when I started making the scrappy and snappy hat flowers.

To be continued....there is so much more to say and it's so darn interesting :0) But, I gotta go sew! Thanks for reading this far.
