Recycled fabric market bags

What are you most proud of? I love the fact that the fabrics are recycled...and the bags are environmentally friendly - reusable! What advice would you give someone starting this project? When you sew the bag together, be sure to reinforce the handles and the bottom of the bag. You want it to last...forever!

Q&A with cindybee

taramesue asked:
wonderful,I have lots of fabric already.I didnt know what to do with.I like cleverness and recycleing
cindybee answered:
It's a great way to use up fabric scraps! Once you paint the fabric with acrylic, the fabric is stronger and the paint is waterproof. Suggestion for backings: vintage table cloths...pillow cases...I like the challenge of trying to find something to recycle.
