More About Bags

Seems like the reusable bag trend is really taking off! I posted my rant about this a little while ago and, since then, have found two more links to share with you.

The first is Terry Grant's blog - Andsewitgoes - where she will share her pattern for her classy-looking bag.

The second is from the Whip Up blog - Proud to be a Bag Lady - which lead me over to...

Another little known fact is that I work for the Boys & Girls Club of Maui and I think making and distributing these bags would be a great community service project for our teen groups. I'll let you know if anything comes of it.

And it worked. Of course. But it's getting the politicians to take the first step, isn't it...

Hey, you should check out Baggu the reusable shopping bag on www.bellevivir.blogspot.com/ scroll down a bit. I want to make one. I think this would solve my whole water issue with cotton bags. Good job with the Boy's & Girls club!
