I've saved fabric from over the years--fabric from vintage tablecloths that have blossomed holes or fabric from garments and even a custom made lampshade--that I've hoped to repurpose at some point. (I also keep all of our broken dishes to someday use in mosaics.)
The fabric below was once part of a tablecloth that covered our table. The bag stands 9" tall and 6" wide. Simple seaming, a length of yarn for the cord. Immediate gratification.
And bag number 2--a little larger....
* Speaking of crows, yesterday a neighborhood crow picked up a piece of pastry from the local cafe and hopped over to a puddle to moisten, to make more palatable? I love watching crows.
