Have you seen these cute shopping bags from TJMaxx? Phyllis at Blissitydoodah sent me one as a house warming gift. I loved it so much I wanted to see it all the time so I hung it on the kitchen door with my aprons. When I was out window shopping with my hubby, I saw a bread bag made from an old linen tablecloth. I almost bought it until I remembered I had lots of "cutter" cloths at home. I was planning on using one until I looked at my pretty bag and said, "ah hah, what could be better than shopping bag fabric for a bread bag?!". I trimmed the top and bottom off. I opened it out flat and cut one side down the middle and then trimmed the pink polka dot off to make the top edge of the bag. I made a half inch hem and added some pink rick rack. I folded the whole piece of fabric in half with right sides together and serged both sides making a bag. Now I can hide the loaf of white bread that my husband and son can't live without and I can see my pretty bag every day! The bag is plenty deep enough for a whole loaf of bread. I just pulled the loaf out for the picture. I'm hiding hamburger buns in there too.
That's my pretty contribution to Pink Saturdays. Visit Beverly and find out what everyone else is sharing!
