Potato Parts And Pieces

So where do you keep your potato parts and pieces? This has become a problem for my grandson... okay, so maybe not so much of a problem for Mason, but it was a nuisance for Mason's mom. She requested a simple drawstring bag for the bits and parts associated with Mr. Potato Head. I thought I could probably whip something up that would fit the bill. I made some preliminary measurements and got to work. A little spud fabric, some embroidery and...voilĂ  , this was the result! We're off to the Capital City today to put the new bag to the test. Hopefully all parts and pieces can be successfully stowed and will no longer be underfoot! We wouldn't want any mashed potato pieces, now would we?
Life is Good!

What a great bag for Mr. Potato Head- love the fabric and the embroidery. I am sure that his mama is going to love it.
Have fun with Mason and Co.
Warmest regards,

Cute bag and your embroidery makes it extra special. I confess I have a love for Mr. Potato Head too---I own a Darth Vader Mr. Potato Head that is always on display in a lawyer's bookcase in my living room!
