DIY Fruit & Veggie Bags I’m on a plane to Salt Lake City as we speak, so I asked Mariah from Everything Golden to stop by and share a (super awesome) DIY with you today. I’ll be back tomorrow with some sneak peeks for Alt – hint: that secret thing I’ve been working on & a look at my new letterpress business cards.

Scrapppy Reusable Produce Bag Tutorial October is Scrapbusters Month over at and I decided to get into the spirit and use up some of my scraps. I ended up making lots of things, but I thought that this would be pretty useful for most as an alternative to the rolls of plastic produce bags in the grocery store. The measurements are very flexible, and I think that having bars of cotton fabric instead of total construction of mesh will help it hold up longer. Another bonus is that this is a project that it doesn't judge...if you stitch a seam crooked...it still functions!

Pleated Pouch Directions Pleated Pouch Directions Thanks for all the interest in the little pleated pouch I made for Miya! A lot of you asked for a tutorial, but it's really constructed just like my organizer pouch with just a slight change to the outer fabric: - Instead of upholstery weight fabric for the outer pieces, I used cotton and didn't interface it or anything.- Cut the lining fabric and interfacing to 11.5"x7" still but cut the outer fabric 12"x7" (you can make the top edge wider if you want deeper pleats, but keep the bottom edge 12" - it will be a trapezoid).- Do the pockets/lining/strap same as in the original tutorial.- Before installing the zipper -->
