One of the blogs I follow (see right-hand column of my blog) is the Green Bag Lady. This remarkable woman has given away over 53,000 fabric shopping bags. Isn't that incredible!! She's also a nice person, as I've come to know her a little bit through her visits to my part of the country. And I have helped to give out quite a few of her bags, which is always fun!
|Each bag has its own number. Here's my number!|
I have several of GBL's bags, and I've also used her super-simple pattern (located on her blog) to make some bags of my own. Some I've given away and some have been for myself. But when I saw recently that GBL was having a give-away on her blog of bags made from Harmony Art fabric, I just had to put in my name in the hopes of receiving one of the bags. I also count Harmony as one of my friends, and the fabrics she designs are incredibly beautiful. Both in look and in feel!
And guess what! My wish came true!! I received an email from Bagette Dad, asking for my mailing address. And this beautiful bag is what came in the mail to me! Isn't that fabric beautiful!
The design is called Animal Farm. I just love the little animals pictured. Love, love.
So check out The Green Bag Lady's blog and website. She's doing some great work, besides making pretty things!!
