I enjoy creating something that I know is making a difference. I work at a coffee shop that roasts its own beans. The beans are bought from organic fair trade farmers world wide and arrive in brightly printed burlap sacks. I save the bags from the trash and put them to good use. I make utility bags, purses, wallets and coin purses. Each one is different and all are very durable. The fabric I use for lining comes from thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets or is given to me. The buttons I use come from local antique stores. I love looking through bins of old buttons and choosing the ones I find interesting. Recycing is very important to me and I feel I am in my own small way contributing.
