GIVEAWAY IS HERE
Here in Northern Ireland the Government has introduced a tax on shopping bags.
Personally I think it's a good thing, encouraging the re-use of bags.
I have no problem remembering to put bags in the car when going shopping,
the real problem is remembering to take them into the shop with me !
I made this shopping bag last month and appliqued a
little large birdie on the front.
I added some strips of hessian for the handles which saves time and are super strong!
To-day I made some little gift bags from some fabric scraps -
I'm sure the plastic or paper gift bags are liable for bag tax aswell?
Anyway, totally unrelated to bags, I made re-up-cycled an old...emm...whatchamecallit..
covered it with fabric and now it holds my rotary cuuter and pencils!
I had to rearrange my sewing room a little and didn't have room
on the table anymore for my usual pot of pens!
I'm really pleased with this new holder.
Have you upcylced anything lately?
