Look, more practical sewing! What's wrong with me? Another thing my mom and I found in the box of old fabric is some fabric which used to be curtains in our (we think) dining room in the house I grew up in. It seemed very trendy in a retro way to me, and it was fairly heavy and had a lot of wear in it still, so it kinda shouted tote bags at me. One for me (with the strapping handles), one for my mother (with handles made from extra fabric - not enough strapping in her stash!). Tote bags, even lined ones, are probably the second easiest thing to make (after pillowcases), so again, something I'm happy doing in someone else's sewing room with an unknown machine, etc.
