Why Everyone Should Have A Rag Bag

ragbag [1]

As soon as I decided to get on and make some pastry yesterday I remembered what I was going to tell you about the day before!

Rags.

It seems very old fashioned to have a rag bag, or in my case a rag box, but I couldn’t consider not saving bits of fabric.

Most of the contents of my box come from old clothes, there is I think the remnants of one sheet in there and a couple of old baby blankets. The clothing is stripped of anything useful first, the buttons, poppers, and zips, for example. Then it gets folded up and put into the box.

Why? everyone under 50 screams at me. Well, I’ll tell you. The contents of my rag bag have, over the last couple of years turned into, or been used for:

I’m sure there are a few things I’ve missed, but the point is in addition to reusing something that was going to be thrown away, I have had the pleasure of making small hand-made gifts as well as finding practical uses such as covering the ironing board when the old cover got a tear in it.

The bits salvaged from the garments that were going to be dumped have repaired broken zippers, shirt cuffs missing buttons and have provided suitable eyes and a scarf for at least two snowmen. See, one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure!

I’ll chat with you soon dear, I’m a little busy right now, I am making some pies to take to the community center tomorrow. Love to the family.
