My “Cookie Bag”

Written by Tad. Posted in Trauma Strap Bags

For years, I have been taking cookies to the emergency department. Usually, they are stacked in gallon-sized Zip-Lock bags, carried in my Cookie Bag. The other day, when I came home from the hospital, I noticed that some of the seams were coming apart. I took it to my sewing room to mend it, like I have done with other bags a few times in the past.

As I started to sew up the splitting seams, I was surprised at what happened. The nylon straps just crumbled rather than sew together. The bag was literally falling apart. That lead me to do two things: 1. sew a new bag. 2. look to find out how old the Cookie Bag was.

Looking back, I was able to find a picture of my newly created Cookie bag: 20 August 2012. Almost seven years ago. That bag took a lot of cookies to the ED in its time. Now, it has been replaced. We will see how long this one lasts.

    I have a recipe for you for cookies. The name of the cookie is “Big Hair Cookies”. As soon as I find the recipe I will forward to you, and yes they are big.
