2021-1st garden update – Onions, Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes

Spring has brought some wonderful weather.
We’ve began our gardening season.
I’m still using my Blue Jean Water Tote
that I made back in 2014. It’s held up really well.


I got two slips off the sweet potato vine.
Hopefully they’ll produce a sweet potato or two.
Happy Gardening Season!

 


 

Blue Jean Water Tote

1-jeantoteI needed a tote for my water that I carry to the garden, on walks or short trips away from the house. I wanted  something simple that also had small pockets for keys and little things like that. I studied on it awhile and came up with a pattern using a pair of may husband’s old worn out blue jeans.

I cut off one of the legs and folded it, sewed the sides together and it made 3 pockets: 1 for water bottles and 2 for little things.
The other leg and rest of the blue jeans went for straps, flaps and stuff.
Once I got started on the project it went together quite well.
It’s not necessary for me to worry about insulating the water bottles to keep them very cold. We don’t like our water very cold.  I have enough room in the water pocket to wrap the bottles in a hand-towel to take care of condensation.

I didn’t make a tutorial for my jean-tote, but I did take alot of photos. lol
I’m pleased as peaches with my tote. I know it’ll be real helpful this Summer.

Do you have a special water tote you use for gardening, walks or short trips away from the house?

Do you have a favorite pattern for old worn out blue jeans?

Here’s wishing you all a great rest of the week.
