The Folksy Womble!

Look what I’ve got!

This brilliant upcycled storage basket arrived in my post today – isn’t it fab?

A bit ago there was a post in the Folksy Forum requesting our old supermarket plastic carriers and food wraps that our local councils can’t recycle. I sent a parcel of unused charity and supermarket bags and was so excited to get this personalised gift back – it’s really brightened my day up!

The clever lady asking is Gina. She has two shops on Folksy and the first one listed here has another excellent example of her industrious Womble work…

‘Guilty Secrets’ bag AVAILABLE at Folksy Shop : Handcrafted

“This bag is a reusable and sturdy bag.
It is made from upcycled supermarket bags and plastic food packaging.
The process in which the design is made makes the material thick, strong and waterproof.
This bag is finished off with a hessian trim and shoulder straps.
The bag measures 39cm in length, 30cm in width and when fully opened a 12cm depth.
It can hold quite a lot.”

With every Plastic Fusion product purchase, Gina offers a refund scheme. If you send her your plastic food labels and or plastic bags then you will get 10p per bag refunded or 5p per food label refunded.

Gina’s other shop ‘Thingers & Fumbs’ sells the cutest little creatures made from gloves. Pictured here is Dudley the Glove Pup (Pet!)

Here are a few more pics I took of my OddSox hessian and woven storage basket – you can see some OddSox creatures have already made themselves at home…

    Ahhh thanks, that blog post made it all worth while.

    I have two parcels just waiting for me to make something with and one almost finished and ready to send back to its owner all revamped.

    I love the name the Folksy Womble, do you think I could use it if I opened another shop for my plastic fusion work? LOL
