    Some old curtains and an old cushion cover upcycled for a better life…

    Here’s March 10th – March10

    A thinner morsbag but great for putting in a pocket… it used to be a doll’s bed sheet!

    I just LOVE March 6th Pol! And 8th… though I feel mean picking individual bags out – they’re all lovely! 😀

    What strikes me, Pol, is the variety of bags that you’ve made in March! 😀 I find I get stuck on churning out groups of bags that all match, as one duvet cover, or a pair of curtains make so many! I mix them up a bit to get some contrasts and to give the eventual pickers a choice, but find I get fed up with seeing the same prints, or colours. Yours are so beautifully individual!! 😀

    Here’s March 11th: a Man morsbag?

    Thank you Beattie! The truth is that I’m having a clear out of all the bitty bits that have been hanging around forever, either because they are hard fabrics to tackle so I’ve been avoiding them or because they’re so nice, I’ve been ‘waiting’ to make them (not sure for what!). They’re generally small one off pieces of material, such as March 6th, but usually I’m the same as you, stuck in a big duvet rut – so I consciously made a decision to make a variety to keep me motivated and simultaneously empty a big box that has been hanging around for ages! Thank you for noticing though 🙂

    Here’s March 12th – this is an old baking apron – amazing how it has changed functions through upcycling!

    Here’s March 14th – March14th

    Excuse the photo; I had to use one hand to hold the bag down as it wouldn’t behave! nightmare fabric, but a pleasing ‘scrunch-up-into-pocket’ bag, with a life of its own!

    Great bags. So far my favourites are March 12 and 14!

    More lovely bags! I know what you mean about sewing up that filmy fabric – it’s so ornery!! Makes super, space-saving bags though!

    Every now and then we take on “The Bitsa Challenge” and try to use up the awkward bits that are too attractive to throw away, but are too small on their own to make a bag. It’s very satisfying to work your way through a box of nice bits and use them all up! That Paddington bag will be very popular, I’m sure! 😀

    Here’s March 16th – a former cushion cover from the Royal Yacht Britannia (Thank you Prince Charles!) 3 needles were broken in the making of this morsbag…
