    Met Betsy today in Carbondale to deliver the tote bags I made for the children's shelter. They are super fast to make and it is a good cause. Also delivered some fabric for her and her helpers to use. I had found some cute kids prints at my local Walmart for $3 per yard...Barbie print, softball print, Cars print, & some other Disney prints.
    It only takes a yard to make one. I cut 32" x WOF for the bag part and use the other 4" x WOF for the straps. Betsy has started a Group if anyone is interested in participating.
    It was good to meet you Betsy. I plan to make some more after Christmas.

    It was so good to meet you too, Pat! Pat made such pretty bags, I just love the fabric. But any fabric you have sitting around works.

    I will be making more bags after the holidays too. Once you get things set up, they are quite fast to make! And now we have lots of fabric to work with!

    I drove to West Frankfort IL today (about 45 minute drive) and delivered 30 fabulous tote bags made by mpattylou, thanks, Pat!! And I was told by one of my contacts there that Marianne Kutat from Florida sent some bags via US mail. Thanks, Marianne!

    I took 42 tote bags to Night's Shield yesterday. Many were made with donated fabric, and some were made from beautiful pillowcases shipped directly to me. Brenda also tells me some tote bags were shipped directly to Night's Shield. Thanks, everyone! Brenda reports they have now served over 1100 kids in the six+ years they have been open.

    Thanks to Linda Jackson for sending a box of totes to Night's Shield! Brenda emailed me that they arrived and they are lovely. Thanks so much!
