Recycling has never been this fun:)

I must admit I am not good at recycling and saving our planet, but I found a way so save the planet from just a little bit of waste. I know I'm not the first one to do this, and I am probably not the last one either, but I had fun:)
You see, in our little household we drink quite a large amount of coffee, and we are enjoying every cup of it:)
But it also means we are using a lot of coffee beans, and they are packed in these plastic bags which I bet is not good for the environment.
So after having seen these purses everywhere I figured I would give it a try as well, and the result turned out fairly okay if I have to say it myself.
I had a few problems with the zipper, I guess I should have made the bag just a bit smaller or bought a longer zipper. But I bet with a little practice I will get better. So I now have people collecting bags for me, well mostly my parents, who have friends at their old workplace who are collecting bags for me, so I will be making more. It does take quite a few hours and bags making one purse, but I find it a bit relaxing, and will be cutting and folding bags while relaxing in front of the TV in the evening. Then it somehow doesn't feels like a complete waste of time being in front of the TV.
Who knows by this time next year I will be a pro and everyone will get something I made from coffee bags or chips bags... it would save my the hassle of Christmas shopping. I thought I finished up yesterday, and then this morning I got an e-mail that one of the books I ordered online last week couldn't be delivered! So have now put my faith to and are hoping to get it here before Christmas, the things is that it is now more expensive than if I had bought it at Danish site, since the shipping from the USA cost more, the other was free... amazon then promises to deliver between the 21st and 24th of December, with my luck mine will be set to be delivered by December 24th which is the day we celebrate Christmas in Denmark and no mail will be delivered... if so my brother will have to do with a lousy t-shirt until it's delivered (he doesn't read my blog, so I can tell what I'm getting him).
Ohh this wasn't suppose to turn into a complaint, but it did, sorry. Have a nice day, and enjoy your coffee:)


  1. That's funny that you're making those bags! We made those in Honduras all the time out of chip bags and the women would sell them for money. Have a great day!

  2. You have a baby and still have the time to craft! That purse looks great Connie, it looks store bought!

  3. Oooh those are cute! Nicely done in helping save the environment, even if it is just a teeny bit.


Your comments makes me smile:)
