My goodness the weather has been awful today, non stop wind and rain, so I couldn't even get out into the garden. Never mind, I've been busy sewing while listening to the radio, and have made five more shopping bags.
You may remember I mentioned buying a pair of curtains from a charity shop, well I decided I have enough curtains so I have cut them up. I got six bags out of them but only five pictures here because I donated the first bag for a raffle prize.
The fabric is really strong as it's lined with some kind of blackout material. I started by cutting off the top and bottom hems, and making the handles from those pieces. Each curtain was then folded in half and cut into three pieces. Every bit was used. I have gone for a simple decoration by sewing a band of contrasting fabric across the middle. Very quick and easy. They are too nice for throwing shopping in and out of the car.
A good result Mr Wainwright, I think. My plan for tomorrow? To join the Ranger Led Ramble, 13 miles around the Barton area, that's if it isn't chucking it down, I hope not, I really want to get out and walk.
