Sew busy stitch­ing bags

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS at the Bethanie Illa­wong Aged Care Fa­cil­ity in Hamili­ton Hill have been mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to the en­vi­ron­ment. Every Fri­day af­ter­noon the res­i­dents have been cut­ting, sewing and stitch­ing fab­ric shop­ping bags be­cause of the plas­tic bag ban. Bethanie Illa­wong fa­cil­ity man­ager Bar­bara Wal­ton came up with the idea a few weeks ago as she had a heap of spare fab­ric at home. “About two years ago some­one was throw­ing away rolls of fab­ric, so I res­cued them,” she said. “Since then they have been gath­er­ing dust, so I thought what bet­ter use than get­ting the res­i­dents in­volved in mak­ing their own shop­ping bags?”
