Wax Sandwich Wrap
Keep your lunch fresh in these stylish wax wraps. They are so simple to make in your chosen fabric and size.
Hemp Tote Bag
Hemp is a wonderfully strong, natural fabric that comes in many weights. This bag is made from hemp canvas, which becomes softer over time.
Plant Pot Covers
Plastic plant pots aren’t the prettiest of things, but many plants are grown in them. Instead of throwing them away, why not disguise them with fun fabric bowls?
Fill this handy case with products to help your wardrobe live longer. Needles and thread for a quick repair on split seams; fusible webbing for the hem that’s come down, and safety pins to hold it up until you can get to an iron; a small pair of scissors; and anything else you need!
Keep your own cutlery, reusable straw and napkin in your bag and you’ll never have to ask for plastic in takeaway shops again!
You’ll always have a shopping bag handy with this slimline foldaway bag. Make up a few and keep them in your handbag and car.
I’ve included an apron in this book because if we keep our clothes clean we’ll be using the washing machine less!
Face Coverings and a Carry Pouch
Keep you face coverings clean and tidy in this simple pouch, which can also be clipped onto a wristlet or lanyard. Keep one in the car and one in your handbag so you’re never without a clean mask!
