Making bread is a weekly deal in our house. I love those days when the house smells like my childhood- and bread baking does that for me. With the elimination of plastics in our home, I usually wrap my bread in wax paper, and then in a cloth towel. It works to sustain the bread- but this idea works even better- not to mention looks cuter. With our new windows up, the old window curtains came down, those of you may remember the red plaid tea towels that I had hanging in the kitchen.... well, with all these red tea towels around- my linen drawer was overflowing..... until now! Talk about reduce (less in the drawer), reuse (over and over), recycle (tea towels as curtains, now bags... what is next?).
I now love making bread even more.... I hand stamped the bread bear one, cut it out with pinking shears then it was sewn on in red (the hearts were cut and sewn the same way). I used bias tape sew together for the drawstring at the top. They were done in 15 minutes, and about the easiest thing I have made in a while.
