I've been having some adventures in recycling lately. This bag and purse started out their life as a cotton eiderdown for a single bed- the kind that are less popular these days, lightly quilted and padded with batting. When I found the eiderdown looking sad at the second-hand store, I thought I'd give it a good wash and see what I could make with it. The padded bag is soft and light-weight, and feels nice to carry. Something about it reminds me of my Mum when I was growing up- I think she had a similar bag to hold her knitting projects. It's part of my shop update today.
I do enjoy taking old, unloved things and making them into something new. But you probably already knew that.
