I found out about this challenge just yesterday - I had been on holidays and wasn't near a computer for awhile. I could however not let this challenge pass me by - I loved the idea and after scrounging around my craft room and a wee trip to the fabric store - my bag is complete. I am totally in love with it!!! It has a big bright tree on the front. I thought a tree was very appropriate - seeing how recycling, reducing and reusing is all about preserving the environment.

How I made it = I used some old curtains from Ikea for the bag. For the applique I had to go to the fabric store and purchase some cotton prints as I did not have these colours available. 
I hope you like it !! - I can't wait to use it
