The Bag Bag (no, that is not a typo)

While surfing my facebook page awhile back, I came accross this youtube tutorial from Bobwilson123!/pages/Bobwilson123-Youtube-Crochet-Channel/145759165474278. She has inspired my creations on more than one occasion.
Here is the Bag Bag I made after watching her Bag Bag video.

This first picture is of the completed Bag Bag empty.
I made this Bag Bag in my school colors and placed it in the bathroom off of my clasroom so that we would have continuous access to plastic bags (in case of accidents).
 This is what it looks like stuffed with plastic grocery bags.

So excited about how well this turned out.

On another note, I have been busy trying to brush up on my sewing skills. I bought a new book...
One-Yard Wonders
I love this book. It is easy to follow and has a lot of really cute patterns in it. Plus, for someone just beginning, like me, the projects are rather inexpensive. The perfect way to practice!

My bestie (or perhaps ex-bestie?) was going to help me figure out the whole sewing with a pattern thing, but I have not been able to get ahold of her for a LONG idea what is going on there. Anyway, I think this book will help. I am very excited about it! I have been looking through it for the last couple of weeks and marking my favorites. Plus, I have been scoping out the local fabric stores and working up a supply of one yard swatches! I have a lot of neet fabric and my sewing machine is out and ready to go! Wish me luck...


  1. The Bag Bag is really cute. We could really use one of those for all our plastic bags. I really need to learn how to crochet!

    1. Well, once things settle down this summer, I would love to get with you and teach you! Plus, the kiddos can play. I know they would love that!
