I bought some used net curtains to make seethrough bags to take to the supermarket to put loose veggies and fruit into in order to keep the carrots together, the apples together instead of getting seperated in my shopping trolly (shopping cart usa)
I don't like all this plastic floating about. So I try to buy my fruit and veggie devoid of plastic wrapping.
Well this month at church we are joining in a national Eco Church looking at our response as Christians on how we look after what God has blessed us with.
So at the end of the service members added to a board of ideals eg what they did/tried to do.
So here is the first bag from the net curtians I have made. I recycled net curtains someone was getting rid of on ebay. I used a hand cranked Singer sewing machine and I used some elastic also recycled from my recycled stash tin.
I think I made this one a wee bit too large but can you tell what's inside it. The cashier will be able to see what vegs are inside and they'll all be together.

Especially like it, when the header of the curtain is repurposed as channel to carry the drawstring :)
This is my first lace project in over 40 years of knitting. The designer is Martha Wissing and her detailed easy to read pattern made this a fun and really quick knit. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/eurasian-cowl The pattern uses Shibui silk cloud and Madi Tosh Sock yarns held together. I used the Tosh Sock in Rose and the Shibui Silk in bone.
