finally (FINALLY!!) finished sewing my OOT bags! (pics)

Recommended Posts

I can not beleive it, but I finally finished sewing my OOT bags. We only needed 12 of them, but I have never sewn before and I wasn't working from a pattern, just my sister and I figuring out what to do as we went. So I am super proud of myself for getting them done! If I could do it over, I wouldn't do so many, cuz it really took alot of time. Like ALOT. (We were originally planning on about 24 bags, so we have 2 different prints to be the main bag, and the lining and straps were going to be blue, orange or pink. Since we only needed 12, and we had already had all the orange and pink cut, we vetoed the blue.) Most of the bags have an interior lining that matched the straps, but on some of the pink bags, we used pink straps and orange lining to fun it up a bit. Here are some pictures.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
