What do you call a scared tyrannosaurus?

A nervous rex. This came from a book that I will tell you about at the end of my post....just thought it was cute :)

These bags are called Hioto Bags and I think they make great Gym bags and overnight bags too. I use mine almost everyday when I go to the gym. It is very big and I can fit all my necessaries into it (except my shoes....that happens when you are 6 feet tall and have a size 12 foot). I've made between 6 and 8 for gifts and here are some that I've made recently and have given away.

Pam's Bag
Rachel's Bag

Tracy's Bag
They are reversible you can make them in any size as long as you adjust the fabric accordingly. I'm not sure where the pattern originated but I've seen these bags everywhere. You might notice I put those great bag tags on them too!!!
Yesterday was a great BARGAIN day for me. I went to a few garage sales and to a Church Rummage sale. I was able to get several 100% cotton men's shirts for 2.00. The church was finishing their sale and told the group to fill a bag for 2.00. I had no trouble filling a bag. I also got some really neat vests to use for fabric postcards. I also got a few needlework books and a joke book for kids. So here are a few for you to stash away for the future:
Why did the football coach go to the bank? To get his quarterback!!!
Why did the chicken cross the playground? To get to the other slide.
What do you call a skunk in court? Odor in the court.
Why did the radish kiss the banana? Because it had appeal.
I hope you find the opportunity to use them on a young person....or an old person :)
If you have not been by the store might want to do so soon. I have added several new things to the store and I'm adding more tomorrow as well. There are some really great check them out.


  1. Love the Nervous Rex joke and got a groan from my husband who didn't think it was nearly as funny as I did.

    I love the bags especially the middle one.

  2. Great bags Kelly. And the jokes are so funny. Thanks for sharing them. It is always good to have a little laugh at the end of the day :-)
