In a continuing effort to leave as small a 'footprint' as possible on the planet as I can, whenever we need or want something we look amongst the things we already own for a solution. Therefore, needing more storage for the 'shed' we unearthed these 2 grotty-looking specimens (as shown in an earlier post).
Here they are almost finished and ready for use. There's not much of a difference, I grant you. We stripped off the old fabric from the tops and gave them a coat of paint (with the remains of a half-used tin in OH's shed). Then I chose some fabric from my stash that I'd previously thrifted (yes it is different although it may not seem so at first glance) and covered the tops using upholstery tacks also from OH's shed (I'm amazed at what he's got stashed away in there!). They're usable now although I intend to replace the handle and line them with paper at some point.
Green Bag Lady during Sew Mama Sew's giveaway day last year. Now I have to find someone who will appreciate and use it, to give to. It's just a simple tote bag but is a good size and will fold up quite small to tuck into a handbag.
