The city workers are working on repaving my segment of the street, so I am inside for the day. I decided to look up some easy to do crafts. I found this origami market bag video and tutorial that sounded very interesting. Alanda Craft gives great directions and provides a video for making this origami bag.
There was a bin of patriotic fabric that survived my reorganization purge of fabrics. I also always have denim fabric handy. There was enough denim to make the large bag on the video, but I did not have enough of the patriotic fabric. The tutorial includes directions on how to adjust the size of the bag, so I was able to come up with a small origami bag.
I intended for the denim to be the outer part of the bag, but I reversed the folding directions.
The patriotic fabric is on the outer part of the bag…very Fourth of July!
Tomorrow, I will be able to leave the house and celebrate the Fourth of July with family.
