These little bags may look odd, but they are actually made with clothing. Usually, once clothes are beyond repair, I usually send them off for recycling. However, there is usually a good amount of perfectly good fabric there as well as worn out material. So, I decided to cut out the useable part and make them into drawstring bags for my stitch markers to go into. Then, the bits of fabric that can’t be used either go on my compost (if it is a natural material) or go for recycling. The drawstring is aran weight cotton I had hanging around. Hopefully, these will get a few more years use out of them now they have a new use. #recycled #upcycled #sustainablefashion

Well……today was meant to be a dye day, but as you can see I only got as far as washing the yarn! Basically, trying to squeeze in a visit from the Electrician, painting the undercoat on the skirting boards and dyeing a batch of yarn was too much to do in the 3 hours I had in the morning before picking my youngest up from nursery! So, I shall have to do some dyeing tomorrow morning before my husband and I lay the living room floor! Rotfl. 😂 #indiedyer
