Teresa - we love what you are doing. My bag - 414 - is just wonderful. I wore a matching outfit for its debut at the grocery today. I cannot wait for our Girl Scouts to start making bags and giving them at local stores. This will be a busy fall! Can you give me some details on the types of fabric you need for donations? I know bolts would be great- but what about repurposing - what are your requirements?
Jen--Thanks for your comment, glad you were able to use your bag today!I'm so excited that your Girl Scout troops are going to make bags to give away at local stores this fall. That is fantastic and exactly what I want to happen!As far as fabric, anything that is not too thick or stretchy works great. Also, make sure everything is clean if it is used! :) Thanks for asking.Teresa
Then clothes (dress shirts, skirts scarves) are ok?
Yes, those will work, you can sew up the placket of a blouse/shirt and cut out the square and then cut the straps out of the sleeves. HOWEVER, because of the wonderful amount of fabric that I have gotten lately, I would not use clothes to make bags out of at this moment as it takes more time to cut them out. :)Thanks for asking Jen!
