Bright and fresh Laundry Bags!

I made these new laundry bags from the last bits of designer fabrics I had left. I was so happy that I had enough for two! The polkadots and floral prints are so bright and cheery and each has a contrasting drawstring. See them up close here and here.
I know it's unbelievable, but I haven't received any of the new fabrics I orderd from USA yet. I have a sinking feeling they might have been shipped by sea mail?! I'm trying not to despair by keeping myself busy preparing for tomorrow's trip to Cologne (trade fair). It's supposed to be huge with about 250 exhibitors from 25 nations. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to take pics in there, but I will bring along my camera anyway.
I have made a list with exhibitors I want to visit with the top three I must absolutely visit, and if I'm lucky I will receive a contract from at least one of them by the end of the day. Let's face it - in the long run, in order for my business to survive, I need to get my supplies and fabrics wholesale from a dealer over here.

Back on Monday!

I'm taking part in Little Andalucia's Creative Friday Features. Come join the party!

  2. Hello Duni! Sometimes waiting produces good things too. In your case you have proven it true. You were able to produce another pretty craft. The laundry bags is as expected beautiful. Waiting too much sometimes also gives you more time to exercise your imagination and creativity.

    I hope you will receive your fabrics soon. Your creative ideas can't wait too much. ;-)

    Good luck on your trip to Cologne. I hope you could take pictures. I have heard a lot of great things about the place.

  3. I love them Duni! So cute! Hope your new fabric arrives soon. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I really think these are beautiful, Duni. I use a wicker basket for our laundry but I keep trying to think of other uses--I just love the fabric!

    Thanks for linking up to the party!!

  5. So you already know my favorite is the green one:) And I'm picturing how cute it would look hanging in our guest room!

    Heheeh..."sinking feeling...that it's being boated over". I thought it was funny. But it's not, it's tragic. Hopefully you get them soon! But, as you mention, it just gives you more reasons to seek out local suppliers. Hope the trade fair goes well, and can't wait to hear about it!

  6. Good luck in Cologne! Have fun and I hope that everything goes well!

  7. Those bags are so pretty! I always love the fabric you choose. I hope you have a great time in Cologne and are able to find some dealers closer to you.

  8. very pretty Duni. Good luck in Cologne and have fun too :)

  9. I can't even imagine the frustration of having to wait so long for supplies. I get frustrated waiting the usual 3-5 days here...

    I hope they come soon...and have fun in Cologne...good luck :)

  10. These are soo pretty! I love and treasure mine :)

  11. I LOVE those laundry bags, Duni!

  12. Those bags are great!

    I hope your fabric comes soon...there's nothing worse than waiting for a package you need.
