Day 30 of Sewvember

Morsbags Sewvember DAY 30 – Ocean Themed bag mini challenge

From the wonderful Tracy “Today is the final day of morsbags Sewvember 2019. It sees us going back to the original catalyst for making morsbags with an optional mini challenge to make a bag with a marine theme.

My offering for today is a plain curtain lining bag with a bit of ink stamping on it.

I’m looking forward to seeing today’s bags, themed or otherwise, but I also want to thank each and everyone who has participated in morsbags sewvember.

I know I’ve really enjoyed seeing the bags you’ve all made with such dedication and creativity – it’s really inspiring.

Remember to update your tallies on www.morsbags.com and hand these ones out with pride in a job well done.”

A massive well done and huge thank you to you all for being the change 🐳 💓

Day 29 of Sewvember

Morsbags Sewvember DAY 29 – seasonal bag optional mini challenge.

Sewvember 2019 is nearly over, December is so close you can almost taste it! So let’s have a bit of fun with a themed bag that is seasonal to wherever in the world you are.

For our pod – it’s a Christmas themed bag with a cheeky robin to use instead of wrapping paper or perhaps to make the grocery shopping a bit more festive.

Let’s see your bags be the festive, seasonal or just plain useful 🙂

Day 28 of Sewvember

Morsbags Sewvember Mini Challenge DAY 28 – mini morsbag

This was a piece of patchwork that never amounted to anything, a UFO if you will (UnFinished Object).

Now it’s two mini morsbags with a teapot theme ….tiny tea bags?

I fancy a cuppa now ☕️

How are your tiny bags coming along?

Morsbag Origami!

Morsbags Sewvember – morsbag origami
💡💡💡

Use your origami superpower to fold your morsbag up into neat package to keep it tidy in your bag/pocket/glove box.

No fancy pockets or straps or extra small bags required!

Thicker bags will do this too, but you might only be able to fold them into 3 after you’ve tucked the handles down.

Manbag Handout on June 16th!

The next coordinated handout is on (UK) Father’s Day on June 16th. Let’s have a manbag extravaganza… Who’s in?

For those of you new to handouts, it’s basically a sewing frenzy for the next coming weeks culminating in giving away the stash of morsbags you’ve made. Ways of setting your morsbags free into the wild could include:

in/outside a local shop/library/cafe/museum
post through letterboxes in your street
bag your local pub/male changing room…

The possibilities are endless.

What will you do to join in? 🧐

MORSBAGS SEWVEMBER!!

With Christmas fast approaching let’s each make a morsbag per day throughout November and let’s get loads of morsbags ready for December 🎄

Interesting snippets from pods last month:

From ‘GlassyBaggers’: “We are a group of stained glass makers and we want to create Morsbags, to offer to our customers, free, instead of plastic bubblewrap.”

Only our second morsbags pod in Singapore!
‘Upcycling is fun’ writes:
“fighting the plastic bag craziness in Singapore – one Morsbag at a time…”

‘Tropical Totes’ writes:
“Taking the Morsbags philosophy to the Costa Tropical, Spain. Trying to share the fun and rewards of recycling fabrics for good use!”
😀

We love seeing the morsbags message spreading to other countries and continents. How do you think April will go? Will you help us smash the 5000-morsbags-made-in-a-month tally?

Happy Easter Morsbaggers!

Make sure you have plenty of rest and chocolate in ready for eggciting morsbag plans after Easter…. things are hotting up hotter than a hot cross bun…
