Re: Make a Quilted Bag and Tote Your Laptop in Style

If you live in a wet climate, make your bag waterproof. Use a washable outer fabric and add a layer of plastic underneath it. My favorite computer bag is not quilted but has a recycled plastic rice bag between the outer layer and the lining. It was made by an NGO in Cambodia and sold in their shop. It's my "go-to" bag on rainy days.

Re: How to Make a Valentine from an Onion

Thank you so much for this idea. I do some crafts with kids at an international school in Kazakhstan. We are very limited in what we can do because most art supplies aren't available here. I love to make things out of natural products or found items. So after I read this idea this morning and went to the local market or my groceries, I thought I'd look for onions to try this for myself. One stall had red onions - a great rarity - and I was so lucky. The vegetable lady was peeling off the extra skins from the red onions and was going to throw them away. She actually gave me a lovely bag full. Of course, I also bought some of the onions :) I'm deinitely going to make this now. Just one question - can you post the pattern and/or dimensions or the box?
Thanks again.
