Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway #1

Sew, Mama, Sew! is hosting a giveaway day! I am participating by giving away two morsbags (fabric shopping bags) to two lucky winners. If you want to make your own bags, there is a free pattern here.



I used a beautiful thrifted sheet to make the bags. I found this huge (queen or king) tan and ivory/white-striped bedsheet at Goodwill for 99 cents. I love the fabric so much I'm going to make myself some new kitchen accessories with some of it.

To be entered to win, just leave a comment on this post about one environmentally friendly thing you do--no matter how small it may seem. I will use random.org to choose two random winners from all comments left by 12 midnight CST on Sunday, December 6, 2009. I will ship the items by December 12, and I will ship internationally. Thanks for participating!

Thanks for participating in an eco-friendly way! I also use reusable grocery bags to cut down on the number of plastic bags blowing around and being made. We try to conserve as much as possible by using recycled products, composting, reusing... it's always good to see others doing it, too!

We exclusively cloth diaper to be environmentally friendly !

I recycle everything I can. My husband thinks I'm a little obsessive about it. I also try to compost as much as possible.

I wash and reuse plastic ziplock bags till they spring a leak or look dreadful. I do other things like keep the nylon bags oranges and onions come in to scrub pots, pans and our farm eggs (different one for each purpose rest assured!)

Betsy said...

Thanks for the giveaway - I love resuable bags, and I've decided there's no such thing as too many!

I recycle, I try to reuse. And I keep trying to garden (local eating is environmentally friendly!).

Dr. Bec said...

I always "try" to use reusable bags, and I've even convinced hubby to do some recycling *gasp*!

Breanna S. said...

I teach my preschoolers to turn off lights and recycle paper

Mama Lusco said...

Thanks for stopping by my giveaway and sharing the tutorials! I always bring bags to the store and use fabric napkins. Thanks for your giveaway!

Lynne said...

I recycle, love to repurpose things and use cloth instead of plastic. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Ammie said...

These are delightful, and thanks for sharing a tutorial link!

We try to be green by driving very little and biking or walking to work and the store, etc. Oh, we try in so many ways, and I hope our efforts help!

Shirley said...

We recycle paper, cardboard from food packages, glass and tins and put our food scraps in the compost bin.

thelittlegreenhouse said...

Great bags! I love them!

I'd say the greenest thing we do is consuming very little. We rarely buy things, and when we do, we try to buy used. I also make as much stuff as possible, to keep from buying things.

Madeleine said...

I always bring my bags to the grocerie store and I recycle everything and try not to buy useless things.

Happy holidays!

Jenny said...

We do use reusable bags here. One thing I did when my son outgrew his receiving blankets was cut them into smaller squares and use them instead of paper towels.
Thanks for the giveaway!
