Well, I’ve had some weeks of illness in which knitting seemed too much. I know, I know!! But I managed to slowly make more Boomerang bags some days. I finally cut up a pair of ramie jeans I must have kept for at least 15 years since they wore right out, in case I’d learn how to make another pair… or something. I can see why I loved these from the time I bought them second hand in, oh, the late 1980s or early 1990s– but I’ve finally let my longing to reproduce them go and taken the scissors to them.
They made some nice bags…
I found yet more bits and pieces to create linings from, including jeans pockets and other leftovers from the last round of bags.
This series of bags all came from a striking border print I had in stash. Origins lost in the mists of time, but I guarantee I never imagined myself in a square dancing circle skirt made of this!
Then there was this shirt I made many years ago and had years of happy times wearing. Now that fabulous print gets a new lease on life.
The last of one of Joyce’s fabrics, teamed with jeans that have passed the point of no return for a nice strong base.
Finally, I had quite a score of big prints on cotton canvas one day at the op shop. A black and white panel seemingly designed to hang on a wall and then these red and green prints.
And that is a wrap! But not a single use plastic wrap, haha….
