here is a simple recipe for Silk Sari Bags.
I made my first one years ago and used it as a handbag for a while, so I wanted it to be firm and not let stuff drop through.
Being back in Australia at the moment, where SAY NO TO PLASTIC is really a thing now, I realise we need a lot of bags for shopping on hand, so I have reworked the Silk Sari Bag to be lighter and looser, it uses less yarn.
First though the long tale of making Sari Yarn
1. find your saris
2. check for silk by burning a corner
3. rip into strips
4. hand out to our home based Machine Ladies to machine stitch the ripped lengths together
5. wash and dry
6. roll up into 100 gm skeins- ready to go to you.
