Did you get your gifts quilted in time to give for Christmas? What did you make?
I made market totes with beautiful fabrics of food. In more and more counties in California, plastic bags are not being given at any stores...grocery stores, Target, Walmart, even dept stores. Since the 4 counties represented by my family all had announced this ban would start on January 1st, my bags were much appreciated. The stores will sell one of theirs $.99 - $1.99 or more, but hey, these are unique and made by somebody with love!
Oh, and yes, I made and had them all wrapped in time for our big family Christmas Party. Unfortunately, I still haven't finished my own! I'd better do it now while my car's in the shop and I can't go to any store.
PS: I forgot to mention that although the grocery stores do still offer the brown paper bags, there is a charge for those. I've heard it's anywhere from $.10-$.50; nobody knew and I haven't been to a store yet to see. I also don't know what other states are starting this ban too. It's for the environment so I don't mind. It'll just take a couple times to remember to bring the bags from the car into the store. I'm going to make myself 3 as I have 2 small cheap Walmart bags already.
