Recycled Bags: Pinaddicts Challenge

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.


In the last couple of months I have discovered the blog pinaddicts challenge. The blog encourages you “to pin it, make it, blog it, share it”.

I was surprised and delighted to hear that I won the May Pinaddicts challenge with this recycled bag (you may remember it!)

I had been contemplating making three more said bags for my Etsy shop but was put off by the contemplation of slight, I admit, but nevertheless production line sewing! But I was spurred on, particularly by the kind write I received on the blog.

I am chuffed to say once I got going I enjoyed creating the recycled bags, two skirts and a curtain transformed:)  I am delighted to have fitted some proper sewing in amidst builders and the social media course.

I hope you have had a creative and productive week, I’m off to check out other creative makes at Handmade Harbour🙂

    Congratulations. A very worthy winner as your bag is lovely. I can see your dilemma over the ‘production line’. You could always make little changes to each bag so it doesn’t feel like you keep repeating yourself xx

    Awww I love the bag – it’s gorgeous! I’m not surprised you won and congratulations! I know what it’s like trying to sew with builders in – mine are lovely, but driving me to distraction! Good luck!! Simmi x

    Your bags are lovely and you can’t tell they’ve been made using recycled fabrics. The grey on is my favourite.
    Have a creative week.
