The reusable t-shirt bag tutorial

Thursday, November 25, 2010

I've been wanting to post this tutorial for a while now. I made these instructions for my reusable t-shirt bag eco-craft class a while back and I really wanted to share them on my blog. I thought this would be the perfect time with the holidays coming up. Instead of wrapping your gifts with wrapping paper, get a bunch of old t-shirts, have a sewing party, and use these bags instead. The gift recipient and the trees would be oh so very happy.

You know it's winter when...

it's -28°c,

There's snow on the ground,

The lake is frozen,

dry, itchy, eczema hands,

a tornado went through your entrance way.

Thankfully it's warming up by the end of the week. Warming up in Albertan winter lingo means around -15°c. Still cold, but not cold enough that your lungs feels bitter when you breathe the air.

So am I typing this on a new computer? No. Is my old computer dead? No. Surprisingly something magical happened. My computer stopped shutting down on me. Not sure if it was a virus, if it fixed itself. I don't know. It's quite a mystery.

My computer is kaput. On it's last leg. I'm crossing my fingers that it's not going to shut down on me as I write this. Been trying to save everything on it before I do lose everything. So it's time to search for a new computer. A sign to take a break from the internet. Read lots of good books and enjoy real human company. Answer your emails when I get back and enjoy this in the meantime.
