On Friday night I joined in with some other like-minded folk and enjoyed some sewing time. Thanks to Cheryll for hosting our virtual get together.
I had a few mending jobs to get done before any sewing proper. A T-shirt that needed a few stitches in the side seam and a button to sew on Hope's school uniform (yes, she could do it herself but didn't). Then it was full steam ahead.
I made a few more produce bags. They are just small drawstring bags for buying fruit and vegetables in. This batch I made using a curtain that had was getting tatty.
I also repurposed two chicken feed bags. These are made of some sort of plastic and very much a single use plastic item which is unfortunate and a real waste. They can be recycled through the REDcycle program (have to cut the bags down to A3 size first) but, I kind of like getting a bit more use out of them first as the material is sturdy and reuse or repurposing is better than recycling.
Ideally I could take them back for a refill of chicken feed but that isn't an option.
This month is Plastic Free July. It's a great initiative and raises awareness about plastic use and the impacts of it. I try to do my bit for the planet as best I can.
Bye for now,
