My days work

This is my days work, four shopping bags made from curtains, and each one has my name in the top left hand corner. It's a heavy fabric so should last ages, and they will go in the washer when they get dirty.

Hopefully, if people use them correctly and remember to take them with them, there will be a few less plastic bags used.

  1. Very useful they look to, if only I could remember my home made shopping bags when I go shopping. I have heaps, but I forget to take them out of the boot or forget to put them in the boot entirely.

  3. Aunty Bee, this is what I am afraid of, giving them away and they don't get used. I used to forget, but now I have got into the habit of putting them straight back in the car after I have emptied them.

    Goodness Josie, I get bored after making just a few, 100 would take me a year to sew them up.

  6. Yep, the bag lady struck again!! Good on you for making these nice and useful items. What do you intend to do with them? Give them away or sell them?

  7. I give them away, Sarina. Sometimes to people I know, sometimes to people I meet briefly, and sometimes to strangers.
