What is a Morsbag I hear you ask…
A Morsbag is a bag made from cotton – old duvet covers, curtains etc to use instead of a plastic carrier bag. The idea is that you make them in the cheapest way possible and you must give them to people for free.
So today I went to the local Heart Foundation charity shop and bought a lovely pair of curtains, complete with pelmet, lol, and turned it into a bag!
My sewing machine is a 20 year old Singer FeatherWeight Model 100. So it’s only tiny. I realise now that I should have cut off the old hems from the curtains, coz my little machine didn’t like the thickness of it. The blue cotton I was using was far too cheap and snapped easily, but the cotton I’d got on the bobbin was very strong. I had to rethread the needle so many times because of the cotton breaking, the little clamp thing flew off, and I broke a needle! LOL! But, I had a fab time making it! I shall make some more.
Have a look over at Morsbags.com and have a read for yourself.
Not bad for never really using a sewing machine…
Here is my little sewing machine, and it really is tiny.
