More Onion Bags!

Here's the next incarnation of my Onion Label Market Tote project!

I thought I might try a couple of labels from my onion bag collection with some of my vintage 1970's Levi-Strauss denim remnants, and I think these bags may be among my favorites.

These Levi remnants have indeed been around since the '70's--my dad got them from the factory way back when, used a bunch, and sent the rest home with me a few years ago. I knew I would come up with just the right project for them . . . eventually.

So, it is a true recycle project, fabric and labels both. I did purchase the red webbing handles (how I love them!), and I can assure you that I used a 50% off coupon for the purchase!

The details are still evolving just a bit--still having fun!


  1. Aaaah! These two labels in particular are so perfectly punchy and fun!

  2. Very nice and great reuse -- you've got me thinking about all the stuff I've been throwing away.

  3. Hi, It's Su, who received your "Great Catch" onion bag. I just wanted to say thank you! My daughter used it this morning to carry her music book to class and she received many compliments.


I love feedback. Leave me a comment!
