I picked up this gorgeous sailcloth today for just $20. There are two sails in the bundle. Aren’t the colours beautiful?

I’ve long thought about making grocery totes with sailcloth so now I have some to experiment with. I stopped in at the local fabric store and picked up some heavy duty thread for the project. There seems to be a little staining on the cloth so I’ll probably give it a good scrub with some bleach and water before I start.

So before you ask, no, I haven’t chosen my ‘first project’ yet. Lots of pondering, lots of searching through that messy sewing room, and life getting in the way.  My sister would love something special for her youngest daughter Bronwyn. And in fact she was the first recipient I thought of for the first venture. Back to the pondering.
