Frankenstein and Single Ladies. . .

We, here at Green Bag Lady, like to use as much of the donated fabric as we can. Sometimes pieces are too big to make a bag but not big enough for BOTH sides of the bag. So, we cut off some around the edge. These small pieces can become handles, or they can become part of a bag. We stitch these bits together. . .we have called these bags different names over the years like. . .

Island of Misfit Toys Bags (from the Rudolph movie)
Orphan Bags
Scrap Bags
Pieced Bags
Ugly Duckling Bags (compliments of Bagette Kathleen)
Frankenstein Bags

I think I have settled on Frankenstein bags since he was pieced together too. . .

Some turn out quite lovely, no? Maybe those are Bride of Frankenstein bags. . .
Then we have the Single Ladies (Little Man version, must SEE!). . .these are fabric pieces that were only enough for 1/2 of a bag. We call them Single Ladies until they find a partner. . .
It is so nice when they finally (after years on match.com) find that special someone. . .it makes us all very happy. . .aaaaahhhhh. . .





Have a happy day. These bags are like my life you know, I have to piece everything together on a daily basis just to get everyone where they need to be and it is SO nice when all the socks match from the dryer. I do have a pile of Single Lady socks in my laundry room that are just screaming to be stuffed in a pet bed. They have been on match.com far too long. Teresa

Teresa, I think your pieced bags are beautiful! They have such character and charm. And I think pet beds are a good place for single socks...
