Too many plastic bags are used in the world today.
While they may be convenient to use, their toll on the environment can be devastating. 
Although some are recycled, most end up in landfill - where they will remain for many years - or being light, they can easily blow away and end up in the oceans, forests and rivers.

To try and reduce my personal use of plastic bags, I have made my own reusable shopping bags - from bedding, curtains and old jeans. An eco-friendly solution to a problem that affects us all. 

This is a problem that I believe we can all take a step towards reducing. To help people take this step, I have written and produced this e-book showing how to make your own Eco-Friendly Shopping Bags.

This e-book is for sale for only the cost of a cup of coffee.

 So, I invite you to 'have a cuppa' with me as you browse through my new e-book.  

For just the cost of a cup of coffee, this book provides you with

 5 sewing tutorials and patterns 

to make your own Eco-friendly reusable shopping bags.  

All of my tutorials are full of clear photos and instructions and can be attempted by even a confident beginner sewer.  

The first tutorial is for a simple pillowcase bag that folds into it's own pocket and can be carried in your handbag; 

Next, I show you how to make strong reusable tote shopping bags from old bedding,

 and produce bags from old net curtains

Then finally, the ultimate 'Eco-Friendly Handbag Shopping Bag'.

A handbag that contains a whole set of reusable shopping bags in a special hidden bag in the base of your handbag; for your weekly grocery shop. 
You'll never have to worry about forgetting your shopping bags, or leaving them in the car again!

By making and using your own set of these Eco-friendly reusable shopping bags, you could stop literally hundreds of plastic bags from going to landfill every year.

Not only is this e-book very reasonably priced at only the price of a cup of coffee, I am also donating $1 from each book sold to the WWF, to continue to help save and protect our precious environment and wildlife.

So why not 'share a cuppa' with me today and

This is an e-book course to help kids (or adults) learn to sew.  It uses a pair of jeans as the main fabric for the nine projects included in the book.
I chose a pair of jeans because I personally love sewing with denim, it's strong, hard wearing, looks great and only improves with age.  Sewing with old clothes is also a very eco- and budget friendly fabric source option, which is something I feel strongly about.  It teaches kids to use what they've got for sewing resources - the tutorials making use of all parts of the jeans from the zip to the pockets and even the waistband!

The nine tutorials in the book build up skills and techniques gradually, but each project is achievable for kids to make either by themselves or with a little help from an adult.

Through the course of the book, kids will learn skills like appliqué and putting in zips; and also how to read tutorials and patterns that use both written instructions and photos to make each step clear and straightforward.

By the end of the book, once all the tutorials have been completed, the sewer should have the confidence to be able to browse through the endless sewing tutorials available online - both here on my blog and on many other fabulous blogs and sites - and try making lots of new things!

This book is excellent value for only

  1. Just purchased your fabulous e-book - great tutorials. The easier projects are perfect for teaching an 11 year-old that I babysit how to sew. I'm excited to give the jeans bag a go for myself - love the zippers. I love that you are donating a portion of the proceeds to WWF. The price can't be beat - it is cheaper than a cup of coffee here in the USA :-)

    1. Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the book and it sounds like you're going to get some great use out of it!
