Boomerang baggers get creative
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.
