Things 278 – 282

Anyone who knew me in high school is going to recognize my last-minute, panicked, let’s-get-this-thing-done approach to the blog over the next 30 days.

I had a tendency to procrastinate back in the day. I did most of my homework and studying on the bus. I remember writing an essay on Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World in under half an hour without having even read the book.

Now I need to post on average three Things a day. And that’s if I post every day.

Right then. Let’s get to work.

Today’s Things are the last of the summer backlog. They were a gift for my sister-in-law, Linda.

Using the endless supply of fabric left over from the tissue pouches, I made a book tote bag and matching accessories to take to the beach.




The bag itself had a recessed zipper, inside pockets and a gusseted bottom. I didn’t use a pattern but this tutorial on recessed zippers was a huge help.





A little zip bag was needed to hold loonies for the ice cream shop.





A drawstring sunglasses case lined in white velvet was for for the end of the day when the sun slipped behind the mountains.





Of course no set is complete without a tissue pouch.




And a crocheted flip flop zipper pull was the cherry on top.




Perfect for the sandy beaches of the Okanagan!





Cost of these Things: 0
Cost of all Things to date: €295.04
