A friend is moving, and she gave me a boatload of fabric. This remnant just begged to be a mason jar salad set! I love the style of the print.

Made a couple of gunmetal blue arrow print bags this morning! This one is for 4 pint jars.

A new, one-of-a-kind bag, made from a pair of jeans. After cutting, I discovered a flaw in the fabric. Rather than throw the whole piece away, I did some “visible mending.” So now it has even more character!

Found a new fabric I couldn’t resist! I’m a sucker for paisley.

I've always loved tiny things, so it's no surprise that my smallest bags are my favorites. Requests for half-pint jar bags are rare, but I love when I get to make them!

Recovery from surgery has taken longer than I ever expected. But slowly, surely, I'm getting back up to speed! Just finished a couple of colorful batik bags last night. :)

Still recovering from surgery, but almost back to sewing! In the meantime, here's a pint 2 jar bag. :)

Preparing for surgery early next week, so I've temporarily taken down the custom bag listings. The patterns are still available, and ready-to-ship items. In the meantime, I have lots of knitting projects planned!

When bad things happen to good clothes... make a bag! This pair of jeans hit an unfortunate snag, but the fabric was still great for a 2 quart jar bag. Has one of the back pockets on one side of the bag. Lined with a mottled blue print.

A bulk shopping set, a custom order from this week. Two 2-quart bags, and those two tall skinny bags? Those hold four 4-ounce jars each! And they fit perfectly in the quart bags, lying on top of the jars! I love making a customer's idea a reality!

Ever have an idea whose time has come, and gone? It's a bit sad, but the pendants don't really fit the rest of my shop anymore. Prices are drastically reduced - Pi pendants are $3.14, and the rest are $5. Only till Pi Day, March 14, then they're gone!

I found a fun way to use up those end pieces of unbleached muslin left over from jar bags! Tiny, hand-stamped, color-your-own, reusable bags! Use them to carry your vitamins, trail mix, dental floss, coins, ear buds, or jewelry. Waste not, want not!

I've created a few more custom bag listings, this time in blue or red ticking stripe! Blue ticking was one of the first Jars to Go bag fabrics, and remains popular after all these years.

Celebrating a rare winter weather day in Alabama with 10% off all my patterns! My steps are slush, and there's little icicles everywhere. Let's stay in and sew today!

Trying something new! I've assembled a small selection of fabrics to choose from, to make it easy to create your own custom bag! If this one goes well, there will be more sizes and fabrics soon.

If zero waste shopping is one of your New Year's resolutions, a Jar Nest may help you carry jars and bottles safely (and quietly)! It's an insert to put into any sturdy bag, basket, crate or cooler. There's also a pattern to make your own!

Somebody really should buy this bag before I decide to keep it... Have I mentioned that I do not have a quart 2-jar bag of my own yet?? ;)

My favorite part of the bags I just finished? The adorable napkins with little gold arrows!

I had just enough "Angelica" by Amy Butler left for a pint 2-jar bag! Lined with a peaceful sky blue.

Well, here's a new use for my jar bag... buttons! My little embroidery class this week will be experimenting with adding buttons to embroidery. So my jar bag is full of jars of buttons, with enough room around the sides for floss and fabric!

A few bags in a new fabric combo today! However, I did not notice till I was nearly finished that the singles have a faded line right in the front. So here's your chance to get a bag or two at a discount!

I've had a few custom orders for bags to fit a new kind of pint jar, so I thought I would try one out in the shop! It is made to fit a Ball Collection Elite wide-mouth pint jar. It's really a nice size and shape for mason jar meals!
