Trash Bag Dispensers - normal and GIGUNDO!

A little gift from one of our cats. This happens almost every night.
I guess I should be happy its not a gift of another sort...

Here is one of our dogs trying to say, "Don't look at me! The Cats did it!"

You can see why I have to post this! What a mess!

If you read my birthday gift post you know that I wasn't able to sew much of anything for a long time. Since then I have been sewing up a storm. And as silly as it is, I have always wanted some of those fabric trash bag dispensers!! But I was too cheap to buy any at craft shows and too lazy to sew any by hand.

Years went by...

I now have my machine! Guess what I'm making? Lots and LOTS of trash bag dispensers! I am making them for my college aged children AND I'm making them for my kids still at home. I'm making them out of old sheets (washed) and fabric scraps. I'm making them as gifts, and I'm making them to STORE in order to give them as gifts!

I might have a problem...

I'm making them for my sister, who is caring for my mother (see THIS post) and my mother needs LOTS of them. Plus my sister is just a HOARDER anyway (yes, Sis, that is hoarder...) !!! But since she's got our mom at her house I am going to make a few for my mom's room and her bathroom, as well as multiples for my sister.

My sister doesn't know it but I am planning to make her a gigantic one just for fun.

And, because my husband has the same hoarding issue with plastic bags that my sister has, I have already made his gigantic dispenser:

I couldn't stop laughing as I gave it to him.

I hope you get a chance to be creative today!
