I’ve been making tartan bags with squares of wool fabrics – some of these wools are new and some are repurposed. I’ve brought from Lisbon a number of skirts and coats my grandmother didn’t wear anymore and I’ve been including them into these cosy, wintery bags. This way not only do I repurpose materials, but I also have access to fabrics that would otherwise be out of my reach. And that’s a good thing!
