So last week when I made my clothes pin bag, I told you that I could do better--and I think I did. All it took was five minutes at the thrift store and I had a few adorable baby dresses in my hand and ready to go.
This one appealed to me in particular because the strawberries are a good fit for my kitchen. In addition to that, I love the pockets on the dress, because they are a great place to hold packages of Kool-Aid. I hung it on the wall, stuffed it with plastic bags and filled the pockets.
This dress was only $2.99. That's a lot less than I would have spent if I went out and purchased the fabric, and the buttons. And because the dress was sleeveless, all it needed was one seam across the bottom.
My daughter Madison suggested that I make one for my sister's sewing room. I love the idea. She can store fabric scraps inside the bag, and use the pockets for sewing notions like thread and a tape measure.
It's a good thing I picked up a few!
Enjoy your homes, ladies! God loves a cheerful giver, let that include the gifts of homemaking we offer our families!
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will
also reap sparingly, and whoever sows
generously will also reap generously.
You are loved by an almighty God,
