  1. They are really nice bags. Perhaps you could cut them in half and make them into funky hand bags using strips of the same material as the handles or different material? You could sew on buttons or bright flowers to add a bit of colour. I was at a conference on the weekend and the girls were cutting out different sized circles from material (think it may have been chiffon type) and then carefully burning the edges with a candle. Then they sewed the three or four different sized circles (no longer circles because the candle made them shrivel up a bit to look like petals) together to make beautiful flowers. Table runners sound good too. Or even place mats?

    • great ideas, thanks Rachel. I was thinking of getting some fluoro fabrics and make some beach bags for summer. The flower idea may actually work with the hessian as it is like they are coated with something waxy.
