A Bag, Anyone?


Currently I am in the process of making a fabric bag, the one labled C in the upper left on the pattern cover. I picked up this Butterick pattern during the pattern swap at the Pattern Review weekend in NYC this past May.

As I read the pattern instructions, I decided I wanted a bit more information on how to contruct a bag. So I went to my trusty computer to find information on bag making and found this great site on bag making  for newbies  by Lisa Lam. The site also give some good info on interfacing which helped me, because I am using Calico fabric that needed some support.

If you have any tips to share on bag making your ideas and suggestions are welcome.

Lots of research online later, I found the perfect downspout rain water collection system by Oatey to channel the water to my barrel. I bought 2 Oatey system so I may make that DIY rain barrel yet :-).



I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
