On the 3rd Day of Christmas…


After a little nap, the elves are ready and waiting to bring you more goodies…



On the 3rd Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, three French Hens .

Unfortunately the husband has not agreed to a chicken coop, even though I have been wanting one for three years, so we had to give the French Hens away. Instead, we are thinking that you might want to make your own grocery bag. We don't know about the laws in your area, but around here we will not have the option of plastic grocery bags in the stores as of January 1st. Given this, everyone is trying to figure out how to make some fun reusable bags of their own. Even if your area doesn't require it like ours does, it is certainly better for the environment to use fabric bags instead of plastic or paper ones.


So here are our versions of a fun grocery bag made from MODA's fabulous "Made With Love" fabric which is a twill and a bit more durable than standard quilting cotton.



… fun to go grocery shopping with this fun bag!



… straps go all the way around the bag for strength.

And as the special gift today, we are going to accompany your grocery bag with an Escargot pattern. Just in case you want to have some company for dinner!

See you tomorrow!

    I need to be an “early bird” in order to take advantage of the 12 Days of Christmas projects.

    Thanks for adding the information about the blank page.

    I think the husband should agree to the chicken coop. After all, if you got 4 turtle doves instead of 3 French hens they probably would not lay eggs good enough for omelets. Also, it is not like you asking for 10 lords of leaping, now that would be too much.I can hardly wait for the 5 golden rings.
