Instead of working on those four totes, I decided I wanted to redesign my messenger bag this weekend. So after working on a pattern and staring at the rain falling, I had the wild idea to waterproof the exterior fabric as well. After cutting some gray hemp for the exterior and blue canvas for the inside, I coated the exterior fabric with my wax mixture.
While the bag is still missing it's handles, (I think I am going to add a black leather strap), I thought I would share my progress so far.
I also played with my new toy, a Food Dehydrator.
I love potatoes chips and apparently they love me, my abs and hips, therefore I am on a quest to eat better and slim down a bit. I read that dehydrated zucchini slides are a great substitute for chips, therefore Saturday night I sliced four medium zucchini and coated one side with a salt, garlic, red pepper and onion power mix.
I let the machine run overnight and fourteen hours later, I had zucchini chips.
One one vat of homemade hummus + one bag of zucchini chips = Yum!
