My sister in law

is visiting us for 3 months.
In that time, I am going to teach her how to sew, and how to cook!

So, as a beginner excercise, I am having her make....BAGS!

But not just any bags.

I've been thinking about this for a long while.
See, I make my own grocery bags from the fabric left over from other projects.

But every time I go to the grocery store, I end up bringing home a gaggle of those stupid plastic produce bags.
For which there is pretty much no use.
So, I've been thinking about what I needed to do to make my own reusable version...

AND i FIGURED OUT SOMETHING THAT FIT MY AESTHETIC!


I've been collecting damaged vintage lace curtains for some time.
Got a box full of them!

Sewing wise. this is pretty simple.
EXCEPT...
sewing lace can be a total pain in the butt!
:D
