Some new eye candy!

I can't seem to make just one pouch at a time. It's an illness. Kind of like the Green Bag Lady bags. I start looking at the fabrics and before you know it, the ONE custom pouch requested by a neighbor becomes 30 finished pouches. Clearly I need help…

All of these are available for purchase over at TeresaMade AND help support Green Bag Lady. Thanks! Teresa

Photo Finish Friday

One of the pics from Big Girl's senior year photo shoot. Still can't believe this is happening!
I would totally put this in my house.

And this too!

I can barely look at these photos!


This too. I have a spiralizer I've yet to use!

Would love to visit these.

I'm off to a sale in my neighborhood where I'm selling pouches from my etsy shop. Wish me luck! Tomorrow is packed with volleyball, lacrosse and Octoberfest on my street. Yes! Sunday I may collapse into a vat of chocolate, who's with me? Teresa

Trash Walking Moms posted this on Facebook:
No dedicated trash walk today, because I'm cleaning my own house today (well, part of it anyway, lol) Here's a picture instead of four of the multitude of re-useable shopping bags I keep with me. So much better than plastic, don't you think? These are all courtesy of Green Bag Lady, by the way. I consider them a fashion accessory when I'm shopping

Ukraine Bags!

Dear Teresa!

Thank you very much for this wonderful bags! They are very comfortable.
We are happy! All our friends asking about this green bags and says, that bags are amazing. 

Best wishes, Nadine and Valentina Simenko from Ukraine.

Wisconsin Bags!

I love this photo of Faith's girls with her bags. Aren't they adorable? And, the whole reason we are doing this, future generations and all… Teresa
I won a couple bags from you in the back to school drawing on your blog, and I thought you'd like to see what happened to them. They'd only been in my possession for a couple minutes when my daughters passed by and each tried to claim one for themselves - I've attached a picture.
Thanks again - even if my daughters act as if they're theirs most of the time, I'm just glad they're getting used, and I suspect you can also enjoy their appreciation.

A couple of bucks about a block from my house!
This makes me sad every time I hear about it.

Big Girl and I both thought this was an interesting read. She has several Mormon friends here.

I've heard this before and is important to me since I wear them everyday!


I'd love to make one of these. Found a place on Craiglist that sells the wood near me!

Huh. Tennis!

What are you up to this weekend? I'm off to play tennis here soon and have lunch with a friend. Tomorrow there is nothing on the calendar! What? Sleep in, excited about that. Sunday I meet with my ladies and have a tennis party to attend. You?

Patagonia + Worn Wear

My very favorite sewing thing to do (besides make bags!) is save a favorite clothing item. People come to me with sweatshirts, pants, jackets, shorts that they love and I get paid to fix them!

Yesterday, I had lunch with one of my former students. Kern is amazing! He is an outdoor guide who has hiked both the Appalachian Trail (made a movie about it!) and the Pacific Crest Trail. He is also one of the most upbeat, likable, fun people I know. Each time he comes to Colorado I get to treat him to lunch or dinner. YAY!
Guess what he's doing now? He's working for Patagonia on their Worn Wear tour. What? He rides around in a cool truck made from recycled materials and fixes clothing for people. Yes. Really. How cool is that?

Love the fix on this hat…
 Kern at work…

 The Worn Wear gang…
Isn't that amazing? I told him the next time he's in Colorado with the truck I'll come and help fix clothes! Teresa
