mini-book-bag
I really like how the mini bag turned out that I made to carry the little book I want to keep track of my food in. It only took a couple hours to make it (book and bag) last night. I think this little bag would make a neat gift. If I find a friend admiring it I will make them one too. It is a good size for a cell phone or wallet. I'm not going on a diet - can't stand doing things like that - but I figure it wouldn't hurt to be more aware of what I am eating. It might change what I am eating if I am taking note of it.

This is a bag that was constructed in a similar way, but larger, that I made a couple weeks ago. I ended up not liking it with the thin strap that I put on it. I originally made the bag to carry when hiking in the summer when I wouldn't need to take along extra clothing but after I put in a bottle of water it was too heavy and the strap dug my shoulder too much. Chloe loved the bag when she saw it and I gave it to her. It would be fine with lightweight things in it.

Dave and I went early this morning and picked up our taxes from our tax lady. We owe about $700. I actually made money again last year with my business. Though I doubt this year I will be making a profit. Since I quit offering the made-to-size rings and bracelets I am not getting near as much business as before. I still wouldn't go back to making to-size things. I like making what I want, when I want and making things for fun and to my own liking - even if they don't sell right away.

Your bags are very retro. Did you line the bag?

Thanks. No, I didn't line them. If Chloe wants to with hers she is good with a sewing a machine and can, but I figured I wasn't going to put anything that small in the bags anyway.

I like that bag Chloe made off with!

I'm afraid of having a little note book like that with what I eat daily in it. I know I wouldn't like what I see. But I probably should do it.

I think you'll be much happier not making things to order and just making things that you enjoy creating.

Chloe seems to love my crocheted things. I'm glad.

I figure I need to start somewhere with getting my food under control. This a beginning that didn't seem too difficult.

Can't blame her!

It seems VERY difficult to me personally :P
