I had been feeling a bit unmotivated craft wise in the past weeks.
I may have burnt myself out a bit in the month of February with so many new projects. Or, maybe it's the same creative energy that I am spending instead, with the Slice of Life Writing Challenge in the Crayon Box?
In any case, when I was called to donate a raffle prize for a church event, I fell right back on my old standby, tote bags.
They only take me a couple of hours to make and the materials are already in my stash.
I suppose at one point, a housecoat was sort of an "old faithful" outfit. Well, creating bags out of housecoats, dresses, and sheets has become my "old faithful" project for last minute gifts.
I like to make bags because they fit women regardless of their clothing size or home decorating style. It seems like an easy gift to give and receive.
Still, I would like to branch out a bit. I had thought of making some baby bibs to donate. There were ten babies born last year at church so it seems there would be a market for them.
What are some things you make for last minute gifts or donations to raffles and the like?
