Re: How to Use Fold-Over Elastic

This looks great! I'd like to try this on a dress that has a droopy neckline. What was the width of the elastic you used?

Re: How to Recycle an Old Sweater into a Plastic Bag Organizer

Great organizer! BTW, I have the same problem of needing plastic bags for dog duty but wanting to use cloth (reusable) bags for shopping. My solution is to pilfer the plastic bag recycling bin at the grocery store whenever I need more bags. That way, I can stay "green" and avoid using new plastic bags. Hope this tip helps.

Re: How to Turn Bed Sheets into Shopping Totes

I'm a beginning sewer so this may be a stupid question... why are the straps pinned to the top with a 1" overhang? (Photo 8: "Pin the straps onto the exterior of your bag 4 inches in from each side, leaving a 1-inch overhang on top.") I can't figure out what the overhang does. Could the straps be pinned level with the top of the bag and yield the same results?
