I have several different Japanese reproduction feed sack novelty prints that are meant to cut up for making little bags. I've been wanting to do this for a while, especially since I saw Pink Penguin's drawstring bag tutorial a while back. I put a bit of glue on the ends of this cotton cord and then I used some of the pink tape that Natalie gave me to finish it off.
The back is patchwork just like in the tutorial except made it 2" longer so it is 8" wide by 10" long. So it is a small bag. It was fun and very fast.
I know this picture looks weird. But I have to tell you I found the perfect hot dog. They sell Nathan's hot dogs at my local supermarket. They are excellent hot dogs. But this is the best way to make them. Trust me. Try it. Grill the hot dogs and onions on a grill pan over the stove. We slow grill them. Make toast when they are almost finished. And then top with your favorite toppings. There is something about the toast that makes it better because the toast becomes like the best grilled bun. Even my picky daughter Natalie said "that is the best hot dog I have ever tasted." True.
Recently my bank sent me an email saying I could make my personalized debit card for free. Since my current card wouldn't swipe anymore at the gas station I decided to get a new card. I debated what photo to use for my personal card. I love the way it turned out with my clothesline dress quilt starring on the card. I used the red tape to blot out the number, obviously. I love the new card. It makes me smile every time I use it. Hopefully it won't make me spend more!
Have a good week people.
