These recycled bags look ultra chic and are super easy to make.
Simply take 2 pages with striking pictures out of your old magazines, fold the tops down to reinforce the page and sew them wrong sides together with a bold zigzag stitch - mine are all stitched in a hot pink thread which pops with the pictures I've selected.
Then punch through 2 holes on the top and thread & knot various twines and ribbons for the handles.
Of course I could not resist adding some of our Incomparable heart pendants as the perfect finishing touch...
We picked these pincushions on the farm yesterday...they are part of the unique fynbos that grows exclusively in this region of the world. We have been planting all year to try and reintroduce this exquisite natural flora to the area. So far our efforts have been well rewarded and the plants are thriving! Guess I'm not the only one who loves it here!
We're off to dinner with some friends in the area and I think I'll be taking a bouquet bag of pincushions as a gift for the hostess.
