You might remember that I found a consignment shop in Tallapoosa, Southern Charm and Gifts, about 8 miles from me, that sells crafts made by local people. I took some of my items over there in February and they loved them, and let me join as a crafter. On Saturday, I got a call from the store, telling me that they had a customer in there who was looking for someone to make a drawstring bag for her husband to use to take his medications with him when he goes to the doctor. Doctors always ask you to bring in all your prescription medications when you go to your appointments.
She said she did not want any floral or girly fabrics in it. We discussed sizes and prices. When I hung up, I had my first custom order from the shop! Whooo hoooo!
It just so happens that the week before that, I had bought a pattern for a drawstring bag, because I wanted to see how to make them, and because I think that style of bag can be used for lots of things, and they should be a good selling item.
Today I printed off my pattern and got to work on this project. I got it almost finished, all except for the drawstring and some hand work. I think it will be a nice bag for a man to tote meds in. What do you think? I’ll show the finished bag soon.
