Apparently if you go to watch an NFL game in America, you can't take a handbag or tote to the game unless it is see-through. So Maiden Jane has made a tutorial explaining how to make you own clear tote bag. As far as I know, no such restrictions apply to sports lovers in South Africa, but I thought the clear tote could be put to other uses. To store craft projects perhaps - easy to see which project is where. This could be a candidate for my Christmas Market stall at the end of the month.
Plastic isn't all that easy to work with. I did some experimenting and decided that the best way to sew it is with a piece of paper on top of the plastic. Line up the paper carefully with the edge of the clear plastic and it also makes it easier to see where to sew. And wonder clips (like tiny clothes pegs) are marvellous for holding pieces together without doing any damage.
