I enjoy giving a new life to items that have outlived their usefulness; such as feedbags and coffee bags upcycled into totes; make broom handles into looms then weave rags into rugs. I volunteer at several local organizations where I serve on committees, participate in projects, and teach. I have many hobbies but weaving became my obsession when I realized I could take a discarded broom or mop handle and make a simple backstrap loom that I can weave many useful and beautiful item on, such as rag rugs from discarded textiles, i.e. t-shirts, sheets, old clothing. I enjoy learning and sharing knowledge about handcrafting and sustainable living. I up-cycle materials to promote awareness for recycling through maggiescornerdotorg with all proceeds dedicated to operate the recycling and education efforts. Join me or start your own upcycle group in your town to recycle, reuse, re-purpose, and educate others. I also have tutorials showing how to salvage material such as coffee bags, feed bags, then layout, and sew the material into useful items such as carryall shopping market totes and handbags.
This cute and useful way of recycling and upcycling coffee bags. The vacuum packed coffee bags that we all get from the grocery store or the coffee shops, are made of laminated foil and plastic. This material is very strong and can be laminated together to form an even stronger material for these zippered pouches. The pouch can be used for change purse or even a small purse. It is especially handy when you add a grommet and key ring, then hook to a carabiner so you can hook to belt loop while jogging or walking, taking the dog for a stroll in the park. Many uses and makes a nice gift or stocking stuffer.
