"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."
-Shel Silverstein

Grocery Bag

When I said something to my brother about making his girlfriend something he mentioned that she would like a resuable tote for the grocery store. So I finally got around to making one today. It is actually patterned from a regular grocery bag. You can get step by step instructions here.
The lining:

It has a little pocket on the front that it folds itself up into. It's tough to fold into that pocket, though. I'm not sure I'd use that very much.
Fits perfectly into the purse:

Now I just have to get it shipped off to Oregon... I hope she likes it!
