Photo Finish Friday

Hello there. It’s been a beat. Prom/wedding season is no joke. I’ve done 25+ dresses and more to go. It sure feels good to send them back out the door! Trees are blooming here and daffodils are popping their sunny faces out to greet the world. It’s 65 here right now and I’m off the play some tennis soon. Thought I’d show you my main view these days, sewing machine and watching Monk on Netflix. Have a fabulous weekend! Teresa ☀️⛰️ ๐ŸŒณ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿงต ๐Ÿชก 

Recent Bags

I made some fun bags for my awesome chiropractor who has been helping with my lower back issues. The swatches on the front are pockets. I took his logo and printed it out on iron on material. Super fun process to make Green Bag Lady bags more personal. :) Teresa

We still have a fair amount of snow in the mountains of Colorado. We love the water so I’m not complaining. We got more last weekend and I’m sure more on the way. Looking forward to more spring like temps on day. Have a great weekend  I’m off to hem 10 dresses. ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘— XOXO—Teresa

PS Happy Easter if you celebrate ๐Ÿฃ

Bag #2

Just in case you were worried about Bag #2, here she is. Still intact and used all the time. I can still remember wayyyyy back in 2008 when I started this project and needed fabric. I went into a local upholstery store and asked if they had any samples, misprints or damaged fabric they could spare. They gave me a stack of decent sized samples and small ones too. I used the smaller ones as pockets on the fronts of bags. I still do that. Some of you long time readers may remember when I lost Bag #2 for an entire year! Well, not really lost, you can read about it HERE. Almost Friday! Teresa


Sometimes I Forget…

Today I ran into my local Natural Grocers for a few items and forgot to bring in bags. Whoops! I do have a couple folded in my purse but have MANY in the back of my car. When this happens, I simply put everything back in the cart and bag them at my car. No bigs. XOXO--Teresa


Lots going on here:

1) sewing bags for Earth Day :)

2) we've been getting piles of snow in the mountains 

3) my new fav cake, gluten free chocolate with cream cheese buttercream

4) lots of snow here too!

5) still working through a sea of prom/wedding dresses 

What are you up to?

We got over 27 inches of snow between Wednesday night and all day Thursday. Crazy! But, it’s a beautiful winter wonderland with blue skies today. Caught these lovely does on my way to tennis this morning trying to navigate 6 foot snow drifts. Hope you have a lovely and cozy weekend. I’ll be sewing prom dresses. ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿชก๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ”️❄️ Teresa


What a wonderful update on the Edmonds, WA chapter. Look at all these great ladieswonderful sewing space and lots of yummy food. I'm so glad you ladies are gathering, making bags and clearly laughing a lot too. Keep up the great work! Teresa


On Friday, February 23, 2024, Edmonds, WA Chapter Bagettes Kathy, Pam, Linda, Carolyn, and Carla got a whole lot of sewing done! Bagette Kathy hosted the gathering in her home. Look at her fabulous workspace! It's so inspiring, bright, and efficient. After sewing, everyone gathered for a very yummy potluck lunch.

Bagette Pam wrote:  "We were missing a few gals but had enough chatter for a bunch of gaggly women!! It was wonderful to be together and the buffet table was full!! When Ralph came to pick me up, he took the group picture!!"

Yay Sephora!

I was at Sephora the other day with Little Girl and noticed this bin by the front door. Look at ALL THE THINGS they recycle!!!!! I'm thrilled about this. For complete info scan the QR code below or go to THIS LINK. I know it's hard to read in the photo but they take (empty and cleaned) little tubes, jars, mascara tubes and wands, eyebrow pencils, pumps, dispensers, colored glass jars, makeup palettes, compacts and even dental floss containers and empty toothpaste tubes. SOOOOOO cool, right? I'm bringing a bunch of things there this week. Make sure you clean everything out before you drop off. Have a green day! Teresa

UPDATE: CANADA, Manitoba Chapter

Look at all these fabulous bags that Bagette P.P. Petunia has been making in Canada. How bright and pretty! Thank you for making gift bags in addition to shopping bags to help keep our planet waste free! LOVE! Teresa


Here's a pic of my latest endeavors. Gift bags for a children's bazaar. Keeping 50 pieces of paper gift wrap out if the landfill.
