A Bag Making Party is a great way to get the ladies together. Have some fabric straps and coffee and see what you can create.
Reusable Bags - Make and Take Party
Bring your sewing machine
I will have some bags cut out of my stash of fabrics
Not necessary, but you may bring any of these that you might have: fabric, t-shirts, pillowcases, birdseed or rice bags, curtains, etc.
I emailed out the invitation to some of my lady friends. I cut out a few bags. I had ribbon for straps and extra fabric available. I had coffee and croissants.
Several ladies made bags I had cut out. One designed her own. One brought her own tapestry fabric to make a book bag for her daughter. Many reusable bags were made while we chatted.
In our area they do not give bags at grocery stores. Even department stores and boutiques shops are charging for bags. Its always a good idea to keep an extra bag in your purse. Everyone has a favorite bag. You can try to copy it to make more.
For ideas see my DIY Grocery Bags Pinterest Board.
What about you? Have you ever had any sewing parties? What kind do you like to have?
