Re: How to Make an Eco-Friendly Snack Bag

I use oilcloth that is used for table cloths to make lunch sacks. You can still wrap your food with waxed paper, at least you can save the bag.

Re: Oui, Oui! Make a Silk Pillowcase Project with a French Finish

Sets of fancy pillowcases make nice gifts. Although not as luxurious at those pictured, we make "sports" themed pillowcases for boys, "princess" themed for girls. I started making them out of necessity - when sheets were sold individually, instead of sets. I made fancy flannel pillowcases to match plain flannel sheets (many years ago).

Re: Save a Tree: Make a Reusable Grocery Bag

I think this is a wonderful thing to do - whether you are green or not. I have been making these for years as gifts in funky denim (durable) with trims - for both men and women.
I found a subdued denim pinstripe for my "executive" brother, some metallic denim for my "cool" sister. I cannot tell you how many people stop and ask - where did you get your bags? (I usually make 4-6 per person) They are more durable - I can carry so much more in one trip to the house.
