recycling paper bags ……
It is a slow process as it’s all done by hand. India is one of the few countries who still manufacture and export block worked textiles today.
In recent years there has been a resurgence of people desiring individual hand made textiles for themselves and their homes.
The paper chains were miniature as the strips of paper were roughly 1/2cm by 10 cm.
Decorations don’t have to be expensive. I look in charity shops for how I can recycle things into Christmas decorations.jFor a very different Christmas tree garland,(change from tinsel) I collected Vintage glass cut necklaces and stung them altogether.photos don’t give them credit.
For those who know me , I’ve been making my own knickers for quite few years now. I really love this pattern. The girl who designed these has quite a few other good underwear patterns. I usually make them out of small pieces of cotton fabric found in charity shops.
These ones in the photo were a lavish treat…liberty of London purchased in Japan and made for the Japanese market.
half a metre 90-115 cm wide will get you 2 pairs of knickers.
Another Christmas Rosemary wreath.
