Jute bags…

Many years ago when I worked in an Arts & Crafts shop I gave my mother -in-law a cross-stitch kit for Christmas and now, whilst helping her sort through her belongings, we have come across a scrapbook full of cross-stitch works, I obviously started her off on an interest for a while.

Her work is neat and as we are endeavouring to raise some funds to aid her care needs I tried to sell them as they were, if you’ve ever tried this craft you’ll appreciate the time it takes, there are hours and hours of careful stitching in each one.
I thought about framing them but then there’s added weight and the worry about glass… and so I thought I would add them to jute shopping bags.
We are all doing our bit to stop the single use of plastic carrier bags aren’t we, well these bags will certainly last and I hope you agree they look pretty good too.

Here’s what I did …

I did the same thing with all the others – they all have different wordings of course…here’s a selection, the ‘Nan’s’ shopper was added with a chained wool – too fiddly to repeat!

I’m selling them in my ETSY shop.
thanks for reading,
back soon
