Saw this tutorial on Japanese folded bags and thought someone might find it useful - it's such a simple idea and looks as though it'd be really effective, I've not tried it yet Smiley


The first bag he makes is clever, my first thought was 'wow, I wouldn't want to turn my back on my fabric stash with him around!!' Once he's wrapped everything that moved and some things that didn't you soon realise he's selling the cloth to make the bags, very Eco friendly ... until you get to the end and realise that he's selling them in not one but two paper bags!!  Grin

If anyone tries out the idea please post and let us know how it turned out Smiley

Thank you for the link, that's way too convenient and neat of an idea! Now I don't have to drown in my sea of plastic bags, haha!

Hmmm interesting!

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

I can totally see myself taking a thin receiving blanket and using it to carry a travel pack of wipes and a couple spare diapers...all set for naptime on the go! Amazing!
