My Creative Space - Green Bags




I've been co-opted into earning my keep this week... making green bags for my partner's business :) I'd printed up some Ikea fabric with text at the beginning of the year - we were going to use it as a curtain in the shop but then decided the effect was too heavy. So, what to do with all this fabric printed up with funny little sayings...? Green bags! I think they're going to be pretty cool. So, one down... who knows how many to go! ;)

You can see other Creative Spaces by visiting Kirsty's here.

* Sorry, I should have mentioned that my partner is an optometrist + the "funny little saying" you can see here is actually the registered trademark for our optom practice... there are other funny sayings though!

Hi Kylie, what a great idea - love the green. These would look good in David's Optom practice. P.s. i've been so out of craft action these last 2wks - loads of work teaching. I'm literally losing sleep because I haven't been creating. It will soon change...

I was thinking of an optometrist - after a long relationship with them, glasses, contact lenses, it seemed like the sort of thing you would find on a visit! In fact, I had the same optometrist for so long I can still recite the bottom line - O T Z B D F E ! Just as well I go to someone else now!
