    I had a potter round our village this morning. Waiting for a young family to pass through a gate en route to the dancing class I spotted one of the “dance crew” had her stuff in a little morsbag. I remember Ivybags had made a lot of them out of some fabric with cute teddies on and we gave them out to children at a handout years ago! I vouch for it still being in use 😀

    Then going into the RNLI’s coffee morning I met a lady who I often see out with her morsbag. She has one of our original bags – the ones that we handed out in 2007 when our labels were stuck in a postal strike and I was up nearly all night, hand writing them and sewing them on.

    She delightedly told me all about how she uses it every day – and I know that’s true ‘cos I never see her without her morsbag! 😀

    I scored a few secondhand books and some raffle tickets, then went to the greengrocers. Putting my spuds and sprouts into my morsbag, Kim remarked on my morsbag, this one –

    If that doesn’t work, it’s the first one in my entry on page 1

    The competition was in 2009 and I’m still using the bag, though I had to resew some of the hearts after it was washed last time.

    Just goes to show how long-lasting morsbags can be.

    Absolutely! I love that post Beattie. I am still using the morsbag I got at the London Zoo bagging which started me off on morsbags. Your hearty bag is exceptionally smart. I have a Best Bag given to me by Offcuts and it is always admired when I have it with me. It is a good conversation opener.

    Hi, I am still using the first two Morsbags I ever made, yellow and cream stripes from my old kitchen curtains. I see two of my bags every day at work from a handout I did about three years ago plus one every week with a friend when we go quick shopping after the gym on a Tuesday…

    Isn’t it lovely to see bags that you’ve made in use so often 😀

    Thank you Tracy! 😀 It’s been used and washed quite a bit, so I had to resecure some of the hearts a couple of weeks ago.

    I’m still using some early morsbags too – some have patches inside from the time I carried lots of timers and extension leads around the village for the Christmas Lights Committee – those electrical plugs have very sharp and “pokey” pins on them which made some holes….

    I am still using the morsbag that started me off. I was bagged at London Zoo when
    Gavin had some sculptures on show there!

    Was it one of the animal bags Krisaby?

    No, Offcuts, it was a flowery one. I have often wondered if it was one of yours. I will try to take a photo – will probably end up with it on fb as getting a photo on here is sometimes beyond me – lack of time to persevere is the problem!

    I can’t remember if we gave Pol any Offfcuts2 bags for that event but I remember that it was the first time you came across morsbags. 🙂

    Sorry to hear about the Brentwood coach accident. Something like that affects the whole community. 🙁
