Doing my thing day- Wrap- up for items for summer picnic for charity/ Adventure Express with Cathy

/
Finally, a finish for all the items made from plarn for the local summer picnic charity drive.

 2 variegated toy totes and/or beach bags filled with beach toys.
These are great for taking to the store for groceries eliminating the need for more plastic bags. 
I have tried them out and they wear very well and are very strong.

All bottoms of bigger bags are reenforced with a stronger plastic material.


Miscellaneous tote bags.
These can be made in any size and shape.




The Fisherperson hat or gardening hat.

All hats have cotton sweatband inside and are adjustable.




The Sunflower Set

Hat, purse and flip flops



The Americana
Hat, purse and flip flops.









The Basket

Click to enlarge to see Journey Beads.

All items will be sold as a set if wanted but individually also.
Many of the sisters and associates are making jewelry out of paper beads.
They are made from the quarterly magazine called
The Journey hence they are called Journey beads.
I did not make jewelry but did trim The Basket set with Journey Beads that I made.

Now on to handmade items for Christmas gifts
which I have already started.

BTW I am taking orders for any of the items that you see made in any colors that are shown.
Please email if interested and I will make a custom set or item for you and quote a price.
I use Paypal.
Solid colored bags are hard to come by and unless you want to send enough particular bags for an item all I have are the colors shown.
The colors can be mixed and matched.
I do have solid white and solid black to trim with.

It will take me 2 weeks or less to make and get shipped to you.
