Empty bags of our favourite locally roasted, fair trade, organic coffee have been adding up (and getting unwieldy!). Upcycling bags with all those planet-friendly qualities just seems natural. Fortunately, we also enjoy Full Steam Coffee’s logo and decidedly Maritime theme. The scissors got to work, and the sewing machine (denim needle recommended) stitched away, and sure enough, a funky satchel just begging to go to the farmer’s market was born.
Our trusty roll of duct tape was concerned that the inside bottom of the satchel, the strap, as well as where the strap meets the body of the bag, might need a little reinforcing before carrying heavy loads of organic carrots or books, so it stuck itself there to help hold things together.
