Boomerang bag­gers get creative

Alpine Observer - - News -

A COLOUR­FUL ar­ray of fab­rics do­nated by the Myrtle­ford Op Shop beck­oned sew­ers to be imag­i­na­tive in their Boomerang Bag de­sign at the re­cent “Sew your Own” workshop in Myrtle­ford.

Fab­rics in­cluded woven fab­rics for the tra­di­tional shop­ping bags and some cur­tain mesh and lighter weaves that will be sewn into pro­duce bags.

Land­care mem­ber Gayle South, said it was great to see so many peo­ple take up the op­por­tu­nity to sew their own bags, par­tic­u­larly those new to the craft.

“Every bag sewn is a win for the en­vi­ron­ment, we are drown­ing in plas­tic,” she said.

“We hope to see many more Boomerang Bags in use af­ter Coles cease pro­vid­ing sin­gle use bags to cus­tomers later this month.”

Kits of three bags with sewing in­struc­tions are avail­able from the Myrtle­ford Li­brary for those who could not make the workshop but would like to make their own bag.
