i am really digging life right now. i am so excited about what's next. i have turned off the television, pumped up the jamz and sew!
sew what? books, wallets, and bicycle tube pads so far. i have plans to make tote bags, tanks (summer is almost here), hip packs and bike bags. all of these out of plastic bags! hell yeah!!! i have received so many compliments and much encouragement for what i am doing. i think most people are blown away, even if it is just a gust now, it will be hurricane winds all over the place soon. i love making this shit and i love making people happy.
i sold my first wallet last night. it was the third one i made. it was constructed of a "keep" company bag, scrap pool felt and duck cloth. adam aka "hudgie" from bbq bought it. thanks dude!
wendy from tallahassee has placed a non-specific order for a plastic bag wallet. my choice, she "trusts me". HA!

get your plastic bags together and give them to me.
1 plastic bag takes 1000 years to decompose. all my wallets and bike pads consist of 5 or more plastic bags. they are water proof and super durable.
this weekend i will be building a bike, ironing bags and sewing both days, all day and partying (celebrating) at night.
