Produce Baggery

29 Mar

So, if you go to a Regular People grocery store, put your tomatoes down on the conveyor belt, and put this on top of them,


cute crochetedy bag, no?

the person checking you out asks what aisle you found it in and makes like she’s going to call for a price check until you explain to her that it’s for the fruit, which she then touches like it’s made of arsenic, since you failed to put it in one of those uber-wasteful plastic produce bags.


If you go to the Organic People grocery store to buy one little box of pasta, you better be glad you had this little baby stuffed in your purse, because the check out lady THERE is going to ask you if you brought your own little bag, all the while sneering at you for purchasing pre-made, processed pasta.



*sigh*  I can’t win. It *was* a fun way to use up scrap yarn, though.  =)

Having trouble sleeping at night?

Nina isn’t.  She rests secure, knowing that her reusable grocery bags help save our planet’s resources (and they save her mommy 5 cents each time she uses them)!

Well, Ill have a nap. Then we can save the planet.

Happy Monday, everybody!


Misguided…err…Repurposed Projects

18 Jan

Remember that fateful night involving one too many glasses of vino and a bit of freecycled Christmas yarn?

Since the only cat who could successfully pull off a hat was Seussian, my cat hat became a festive jar cover for my sunflower seeds:

And… remember the awesome crazy-stitch cover I made for Kevin?


kevin's pouch

Well, since he upgraded accessories, his old pouch became my new blender cover!


maybe it should be the coffee grinder cover... hmm...

Anybody else have any awesome repurposey crochet projects?
