recycled bag BAG…

May 30, 2011

This is a great exercise to do with kids about recycling – use up all those plastic boutique / dept store bags to make a much stronger, sturdier shopping bag by ironing lots of layers together and re-sewing them. (see a good tutorial HERE)  It was quite difficult to get a bunch of plastic bags together and that is GOOD – because it means that people are saying “NO” more often and taking their own…. it makes me feel very hopeful… but for now – here is my girl modelling our new shopping bag….

  1. FABO, these are a great idea and fun to do. I too have a daughter sporting a similar creation. It ticks a lot of boxes. They are surprisingly sturdy aren’t they, …have fun shopping.


  2. Is that you Jobee holding the shopping bag?
