Opening Day! One of the best days of the year!

Tradition dictates that I sew something new each year to wear, or to use, on opening day - just for good luck (and lordie know that the Nats need luck - any kinda luck)!! This year I decided to GO GREEN (inspired by the folks at Craftzine and Threadbanger), so I fashioned a "game bag" from plastic shopping bags - bags from Target, bags from a shop in Bergen, Norway and a bag from the Nats spring training team store. I love this bag 'cause it's GREEN but I also love it because it's "ballpark beer resistant". You know how you take a bag with you to the park and shove it under your seat and then the guy behind you spills his beer and throws his peanut shells all over your bag - well nothing to worry about with this baby - just wipe it off and give the guy behind you a smile!!!

So grab those plastic bags that are choking our environment and put them to good RE-use!

Peace and GO NATS!
