Point of View: Green

Welcome to this month's Point of View reveal! The theme for February is "green". There are lots of ways you can go with this theme... take it to mean St. Patrick's Day, something you made that is green, something you made that is "green" (recycled, upcycled, reused, etc). Take a look at the great ideas the members of Point of View have come up with this month...


Gwen from Gwenny Penny (Click HERE to find the tutorial for my Reusable Snack Bag)

As always, you can check out each of the projects by visiting each of the blogs listed above.

You may have noticed that the collage is smaller than usual this month. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to Camilla and Michelle. They are both really talented ladies and their participation in Point of View will be missed! Not to worry... we have some very exciting Point of View news coming soon!

On with the show... My project this month is a Reusable Snack Bag with French Seams...


The thing I love most about these snack bags is that they are linen and they aren't lined, so they're not bulky. That makes them super easy to ball up fold up and stash in your bag without taking up a lot of space. These are great for when you're on the way home from Target and the kids want to eat that bag of goldfish crackers you just bought. They each get their own little snack bag to hold, they don't dump the entire bag you just bought all over the car, and they don't eat the entire bag on the fifteen minute ride home. I don't have a serger, so the French seams keep the inside of the bag nice and neat... no loose threads falling off the seam edges into the crackers. Click HERE for the how-to.

Now it's your turn. Do you have a "green" project that you would like to share? We would like to invite you to join the Point of View Green Link Party over at Just Between Friends. Any project that can be considered green  in any sense of the word  is welcome at the link party. It doesn't have to be a new project... If you have something in your archives, link it up! We want to see any and all green ideas. And remember, by linking up you have the chance to be featured by one of the members of Point of View next week! Hope to see you there!

Some really great projects this time around. Neat to see how the "green" theme has played out for everyone!

Your little snack bag is cool. The use of french seams inside was really smart!

I really had a hard time with this theme (as you well know) but you knocked it out of the park! It's a lovely bag, and I can't wait to check out the tute.
