A friend recently gave me a huge amount of scrap fabric to upcycle into crafty projects. I've been starting with the obvious things - pieces of fabric the ideal shape and size to make chopstick bags for example
These are now all in the Crafty Green Poet Etsy shop - the gingham one here, the multicoloured satin one here and the off-white satin one here. .
A re-usable chopstick bag like these is an ideal way to carry around a pair of re-usable chopsticks so you
can avoid using the disposable ones that are the usual cutlery choice in
many Chinese restaurants. (Many disposable chopsticks are made from the
products of forest destruction, though to be fair some are made from
waste wood from the construction industry).
