Last month we introduced these fun repurposed t-shirt bags. They make fun shopping bags and are also easy to grab and throw a lunch or some goodies for the day into. They have proved to be a very popular item, and priced at just $5 each are affordable!
One of my new sewing adventures is fashioning skirts out of used t-shirts. I have made three so far, and I have a couple more laying out waiting to be pieced together. Very exciting.
This is the first one I made. The front if from a t-shirt I got when I vended at the Richmond, Virginia Vegetarian Festival a few years ago. It is hard to see in the photo, but there is an earth with animals ringing it, holding hands.
This is the back of it. The colors really popped at me.
The skirt has a very wide elastic waist band and hangs to about knee length.
This is the third skirt I made. I call it the Ben Harper Booty Skirt.
This is the front.
and this is the back.
It has a super wide elastic waist band and is truly a booty skirt.
For the past two years we have been using an old Cabbage Patch stuffed pony as our “display pony” and have him outfitted with a collar and dog scarf. He stands on the table between the two collar racks and proudly displays how the scarves look on his fine stuffed pony neck.
Recently I ran across a new display stuffed animal, this time a dog. So I added him to the stand outfitted in a size small collar and scarf. I think he looks pretty snazzy too.
We have our kids tie dyed t-shirts on close out sale. Buy the first one for $10 and any additional kids shirts are $5 each. We will no longer be making kid’s shirts, so once these are gone they are gone.
We have a good selection of 2/3T and 3/4T left but the Small, Medium and Large ones are getting picked over. We do have a bunch of polo style collared kids shirts left in the S-L range though that are also part of the super sale.
*This sale does NOT include tie dyed onsies. We will continue to carry onsies and they are still priced at $10/each.
Last week I finished up a batch of 48 new tie dyed bandannas. WOO!
It was so hot at the market, that I decided to commander one for myself. I soaked it in ice water and put it around my head, several times. Sometimes I tied it so the wider wet was on top and sometimes I tied it so the wider wet part was under the back of my neck. Either way, it felt great. and I really like the dark royal purple and electric green together. Fun.
They will be available at the market on Saturdays.
One of the projects I worked on this Sunday was a new line of ultra light weight nylon netted produce bags. These are some neat little bags. The netting is tight enough to keep the produce from poking through but loose enough to allow a lot of air circulation for your veggies to breath. They are small, but you can comfortably fit a lot more than you would think. They are also super light weight and will practically add no weight to the scale.
This is a trial product for us. So I only prepared a small-ish selection of size small bags. If they do well then I will invest in the materials to carry a larger selection of sizes.
The size small bags we have currently available are excellent for herbs, mushrooms, small amounts of large produce like peaches, squash and tomatoes.
These bags are great for picking up produce at the market, or grocery store in place of plastic bags. They are also better for storage than plastic bags because they allow your produce to breath.
They are easy to wash off in the sink, dry quickly and fold down to a minimal size for between use, try one of our colorful Nylon Netted Produce Bags.
