Here's one thing that I have been working on: veggie bags for my daughters and daughter-in-laws. Some of them will love them, and others will say, "What's this?" I will explain, they are upcycled and made from recycled T-shirts into a bag to take to the grocery store or farmers market. They are for fruits and veggies. Here in the NW, both Portland and Seattle have outlawed plastic grocery bags, although I think not the plastic veggie bags yet-- and you have to take your own bags or pay a 5 cent fee for each paper bag. Anyway, I already have a listing in my shop for custom fabric grocery bags, and for the veggie bags, (I don't know if I will actually carry them in my shop because anyone can make them), I began by making them for my girls! Have a look!

This are so handy! They are completely washable, when they get soiled, and then ready to re-use! NO more plastic! You can make them in smaller sizes if you like, and looks like I might need to make a few "smaller" holes too, so the apple doesn't slip out!
I made them for all my girls in every color in the rainbow, with the help of cheap t-shirts from the thrift store! I added a scrubbie to match from a friends shop on Etsy--Patti's shop--check it out!
Unique gift, eh? Don't anyone tell my girls!!
