In addition to the birthday chair, I also made my mom a plastic bag dispenser for her practice birthday. Sounds like an awful present, I know. But she asked for one and even brought the fabric for it!
A few months ago I made one from scraps of fabric that I had leftover from making this dress:
The bag dispenser hangs from my laundry room door. Anna Jane is in charge of keeping it stuffed with plastic grocery bags.
I made this one for Dave's mom when she redesigned her laundry room. I used a fat quarter, which turns out to be the perfect size for this project. I also used this fabric to make my fabulous fabric basket!
My mom brought several pieces of fabric from her stash and specifically pointed out how pretty this one was and how much she wanted a bag dispenser out of it. So, VOILA! Anna Jane
So the giveaway goes like this...YOU leave a comment on this post. Tell me one of your most memorable or favorite birthday present. I will put your names in a hat and chose one person to send a plastic bag dispenser to! Leave your email address and we can coordinate the color fabric and any other details that might make the bag dispenser a perfect accessory for your kitchen or laundry room.
Teacher workdays start on Monday, so if I don't lose my head in the next week, I will plan on drawing a name on Wednesday, August 19th. Leave a comment between now and then and I will look forward to reading your birthday memories!
