Since the spring is coming (very slowly), I decided to post my cotton/ flax hand crafts from last summer (2012).
I planted a lot of different herbs beside all that grow in the forest anyway. After I dried them I sew different bags that you can put between your clothes (lavender and rosemary are really good) or use them for cooking. These little bags are easy to make – I was making them when I was still learning how to use my sewing machine. You just have to fold a piece of fabric and sew the edges.
The tobacco bag is a little bit difficult since you have to cut different size fabric pieces and make a zipper. This was my first time to sew on the buttons with a machine so it was more like a test. The important thing is that you have to sew the pockets separately and then sew them on the main piece of fabric. I made the big pocket with a zipper for tobacco and little pockets for filters, lighter, papers etc.
You could use the same bag for something else (like clips, hair accessories, …).
I wish you a lot of inspiration!
