These fun little zippered bags will go anywhere with you! Rita Sherman challenged herself to use some fabric that she recently found stashed. She has had such great fun creating these zippered keychain bags, she just can't stop! Check them out at the spring garden sale.

Repurposing is the name of the game. Rita Sherman hates to wast fabric, so she has created these wonderful little boo-boo bags out of old t-shirts. At her house, and her daughter's house, these live in the freezer and come out when a grandchild gets one of those "little boo-boo's". These are a MUST!
