sewing paper bags and lots more because today is the day

Home and more 050

i have started making my own bags for my clothes to go in when I sell them.
i am using old books that we find at paper recycling, or second hand shops.
then i stitch them up with my sewing machine. its fun and interesting.

a message from a friend and a tiger tattoo

a while ago my friend, Julia, gave me a bag of old clothes to use for scraps.
this is the message that came with it, it’s so sweet:

Yay! Got some stuff for you, will hand it over when i see you or marc. So cool to think of some little ethan type guy running around in my gap jeans that i wore everywhere for 2 years. 🙂

marc, ethan, paul and i went to the roundabout which is actually really anything you want it to be if you 4. it was a lovely time of day sun almost going down. roundabouts are amazing things when the house gets just too much and fresh air is the answer to big smiles and happiness!
