Flowery Vintage-inspired Plastic Bag Dispenser



Thank you very much for leaving me
such sweet, thoughtful comments for my
previous post. Many of you have mentioned
that you prefer a smaller wedding
and really helped to remind me of
great sides of such a small wedding like
ours, and now I feel like I made the
best decision for our wedding! Thank you!

The strong desire to perform a big ceremony/
reception in the future which existed within
me is even now fading, which is a great
news for Joe who likes things simple and natural.
I'm thinking that maybe a couple of little casual
parties, one in Washington and the other
in Japan, might be good enough. haha.



Coming back to a crafty talk, this is a custom
plastic bag dispenser to match the set of
two potholders
I worked on. The pattern is
in the current issue of Stitch magazine.
It was my own pattern but I totally forgot
how I had made it so I followed the instruction
in the mag, haha. I really like how this one turned out.



Here is a set of 6 coasters that is
also supposed to be matching.





I hope these matching kitchen items
will bring some happy, rhythmical
atmosphere to the recipient's home.



Ok, time for me to get back to
my crafty space for some more sewing!

I hope your week started off
nicely with some plans to get crafty ;)

Thank you for stopping by!

  9. My husband and I had a small wedding too and I have absolutely NO regrets! Every time I attend a big traditional wedding I just think, "Thank goodness we didn't do that!" The stress, the expense . . . craziness!

    I'm loving the patchwork on this grocery bag dispenser. You always have such cute tiny prints!

  11. I love the pot holders! The fabric and the way put the blocks together in the bag holder would make a great little hand bag.

  16. Mrs. Mills, :^D

    Congratulations on your recent wedding!

    I just discovered your blog and had to tell you how much I love the tutorials. I looked at all of them, but the one that turned my light bulb on was the basket. I'm going to try and make a larger version with strong fabric for a laundry basket! How much space I will save with fabric baskets over plastic or even wicker baskets.

    I think I need to make this project, too. No matter that I try to use cloth bags for shopping... we still get a lot of plastic bags, too.

  18. Whats up, This is a wonderful summation, I located your blog checking google for any similar subject and observed this. I couldnt find as well significantly other tips and information on this posting, so it was fantastic to discover this one. I will almost certainly be returning to think about a number of other articles which you have written another time.
