Can you tell what they are yet? Yes, I know they're bags...but in a previous life?
Yes, that's right, cardies...to be more precise, my poor old shrunken cardies. In the spririt of make-do and mend, I decided there must be something I could make with them, so I shrank them some more so they were well felted, and cut them up.
The green one still had the original buttons, but I'd already recycled the buttons from the black one, so I raided my button tin for some replacements. Strips from the sleeves make the handles and I found remnants of cheery fabric for the lining, applique and rosette.
Now, I still have a brown one, oh and a blue, so guess what I'm doing with them!
