Make your own handbag

 
 
 

PILES of waste fabric, which were destined to be thrown away, have been recycled to make a beautiful bag.

Judith Johnson of Textiles Eskdale – Weaving a Future, a Langholm Initiative project, rescued the material from the former Reid & Taylor mill.

She said: “It was going to be thrown away and there’s so much potential for making things, like this bag.

“I gave some fabric and the pattern to Ann Hill and she made this bag.

“If anyone would like to make the bag, I can give them some material and the pattern.

“I hope that, lockdown permitting, Ann will do a talk and demonstration on Wednesday, November 18. We don’t have a definite time yet.”

If anyone would like some material, contact Judith on 013873 80914.
