Recommended with this pattern

  • One colorful coffee bag 12 oz to 16oz Thread to match or contrast with the coffee bag of your choice ( I use quilting thread that is 100% mercerized cotton) Zipper 5" length, the actual opening is 4" TIPS TO REMEMBER: GooGone removes residue from lables and markers, sometimes nail polish remover must also be used for marker writings when finger pressing to crease plastic-foil laminate material, a plastic gift card is a handy tool for creasing the material and saves your fingernails. And don't forget your own custom label to sew in to the custom made item.

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.
