    What a great idea, it will save all those plastic bags ending up in the ocean.
    God Bless you all.

    No I did not do anything fancy on these. Just simple. The top is like binding on a quilt.

    They are brilliant. What a good idea. I love making things from something that would have been thrown away. Love the piping because it makes them more interesting, plus a good use of scraps as well.
