I ripped out this page from Real Simple 11/05 (It's not illegal to use the picture if I reference it right?) issue during our lazy weekend on the porch. I immediately thought of that sushi bag that Stardust Shoes made and obviously, of all you knitters. Isn't this a neat idea? I don't knit, but I really like this thing. It's like a crayon roll wrapped around a bag. I'm sure I could come up with some uses for this design. Just thought I'd share.
Lately I've had this strange desire to get some oilcloth, so this page didn't help matters. Look at all the funky summery stuff to make with that freaky plastic material! (Click photo) See that weird long bag? I like how the handle attaches. I could do that. Maybe that is why I like it. What would you do with a bag shaped that way though? Gather long-stemmed wild flowers? Boy, do I have lots of those around. HA! Also, see the dog leash in the right hand corner? Well, a few days earlier I was getting our dog leash out and I thought….."I bet I could make a better dog leash. This thing is fugly." Tilt head, eyes looking upwards, pointer finger resting on left side of chin. "Ah yes…I could kinda use Autum's ribbon keychain method …just make it waaaaay longer."
Like these I made.
I mean, yes we have a bitty toy poodle and we could really just use some thread for his leash, but a cool ribbon or funky fabric leash made by moi! That'd be swell. I'm thinking on it.
*the reference: oilcloth page from Country Home:Apr/04 now please don't sue me.
