The recent spate of television programmes about hoarders have got me thinking a bit about my stash of "useful" bits and bobs. It's certainly not a hoard on the scale of anything featured on the tv programmes I've been watching, but there were one or two things I identified with. Particularly the idea of keeping things that could be useful one day! As a case in point, I've been hanging on to an old broken shopping bag for ages thinking I would either repair it or re-purpose it in some way. One day......
Well today I finally decided to seize the day, and here are the results!
Firstly, I took the bag apart and got rid of any ripped or broken bits:
Then I cut up some wadding to be slightly smaller than the bag. I used 6 layers but my wadding was quite thin.
All this took about half an hour, and now Lily has a waterproof sitter for picnics in the garden. Now all we need is some Sun!
