Here in Australia we can use our own bags but we have to pack them ourselves. If we buy a new shop bag, the checkout person will pack it for you. I’ve had a break from making bags over the last few months too but am back at it again.
Just finished another 3 which brings my total to around 30 bags for November, although it could be more, I forgot to keep a count from 1st November. I love seeing the tally on my pod page increasing, and I challenge myself to get to the next page which keeps my production up. I’m on page 8 at the moment and will hopefully be on page 7 by the end of the month 🙂 Thoroughly enjoying Sewvember!

I made my first hundred or so bags with the hand made handles, but love the tape. It’s about $2/m in the shops, but wholesale around 60c/m – big difference!
I tried that polypropylene stuff and it’s way too stiff (although it’s perfect for the bucket bag style of bag suitable for knitting/crocheting project bags), but there is a product called ‘herringbone tape’ that comes in various widths, cotton or poly and is much thinner and easily folded up for the Morsbags. Buy it wholesale in 100 metre rolls. I use the black one since it goes with everything and it has increased my bag making speed by heaps.
Yes, I do the tally thing every time I finish a sewing session. I’m lucky enough to have a craft room where my sewing machine is set up all the time, so having a bunch of bags cut out, labels trimmed and all the bobbins wound is a great way to increase production when there are a few minutes spare.
Just got 10 done which includes the 8 days I’ll be away from my sewing machine later in the month. This is fun!
What a fantastic idea! I missed yesterday, so will make 2 today, right now in fact 🙂
