|And sometimes to fix holes.|
I guess I don't like logos and graphics on my bags for the same reason I don't put bumper stickers on my car: I like to fly under the radar. I'm pretty talkative about my pet issues, sure, but I don't announce them on my bags, tees, or car.
Then, one of the beach girls admired this bag when we traveled in August, and I realized that I could rescue some of the poor sad tote bags at the creative reuse store. There they were, all neglected and ugly, advertising things that no one wanted to claim.
So I rescued them! I covered up their logos and graphics with great pleasure. I had fun picking colors and buttons and perle cotton.
There are four bags in the shop and I have a missionary feeling about them: the need to convert ugly bags into nice ones, to give them a new sense of purpose as they get into daily carrying, to bring them into crafty heaven as their reward.
Go look! There are four of them in the shop!
