No matter how much I try, plastic bags continue to come into this house. I don't buy ziploc bags or plastic wrap, but I wash and reuse the bags as much as possible. The non-ziploc ones live in this fabric bag. My old one was plain red gingham and getting grimy and threadbare. The new one is much prettier and made only using scraps from my piece bag.
Then I recovered the kitchen stools. The red covers that I jury-rigged were getting worn and grimy beyond washing. I did use them as patterns for new ones, which are that vintage printed patchwork from the 70s that I love (and that, to be frank, Mr. Thrift hates; "Holly Hobbie stuff" he calls it, which is not a compliment).
This time, I backed the fabric with plain canvas and added ties on 4 sides to help them stay on. I think I should have used a darker ribbon, or a self-fabric tie, but there will be next time. And that may be sooner rather than later if Mr. Thrift prevails!
