Why is everyone laughing at me???

I got a bunch of snickers at Trader Joe's,

I wondered did I spill on my shirt, do my pants have holes?

Come to find out, from one old hag

Everyone was laughing at my homemade bag



Now I know how Miss Dolly Parton felt in her "Coat of Many Colors". My bag, while not the best job of sewing, I admit, is practical, upcycled from a pair of jeans the Martin simply tossed in the trash. So let them laugh. I hope they get stuck in their lotus positions in yoga class.

UPDATE 11/24- The clerk at Eat Local really liked my bag- he was amazed how much stuff it held! and that it had pockets!

Did they really laugh at your bag or was that so you could make a nice poem. I hope it was for the sake of poetry. The clerks at my Trader Joe's usually make nice comments when I hand them one of the rice bags I turned into a large tote bag.

If they did really laugh at you, tell them too bag, your tote still qualifies you for their monthly drawing and make them give you a ticket for it :)

Farmer's Daughter-Yup dolly is cool- my favorite dolly song

CB- Not the clerks- the customers! At least I brought a bag.

The nerve! ugh..nothing drives me crazy than chic green. There is an element of trendy consumerism that requires you to spend and incredible amount of money for a fair trade organic cotton towel. Instead of teaching the good old fashion value of "use it up, wear it out, make do, do without"

It is a very nice bag. Because it was homemade and does the job! You saved a pair of pants from finding itself in a landfill and you didn't have to buy a trendy "green" bag.

Good for you!

I hope they were laughing with delight at your very clever creation! I used to carry my books in something very similar which my mother made. Now I've got to try it! This is totally going to be the next trend, my friend.
