This is a bag I made for the Going Green Swap!
I made it for the lovely and inspiring Littlebluegirl who lives in the UK.
It's made out of a ground sheet I used last summer while camping in England (Cornwall). So I also gave her back some english dirt!  Tongue
All things used are recycled scrap.

I ironed the fabric with the plastic underneath it a tiny bit to long and the whole thing started fusing together and shrinking like mad. It gave this funky wrinkly result!
So it turned out lovely by mistake.


Enjoy!

Bag in Action... cucumber going bananas!


The briljant text my bf came up with: Used to be!
(I think it doesn't stand out enough but heay I wasn't allowed to buy other color markers!)


Thanks for looking!!

Wow its gorgeous! I'm sure she'll be over the moon. I love the colours and all the interesting little details. The longer you look at it the more you notice.
It really is fab!

Very nice. Very original as well. I think if it had nice and neat fabric on it it wouldn't look as good. It looks more "recycled" this way.
Good job!

Never heard of a neat sheet before. Looks like a shower curtain to me?
Ow I do by the way still want to make a raincoat out of shower curtain. Specially one with rubberduckies on it  Tongue
