ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – Sept. 16, 2019 – Rather than toss old t-shirts, put them to good use as homemade shopping bags. Learn how to make a variety of reusable shopping bags, including mesh bags for fruits and vegetables, sturdy bags for heavy items and easy-made bags out of t-shirts at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18 at SEED Lab, 109 W 6th Ave., across the street from the Anchorage Museum.
SEED Lab collaborated with artists Amy Meissner and Keren Lowell, along with Boomerang Bags Anchorage, to provide instruction and helpful tips for creating shopping bags. Fabric, patterns and tools are provided, or people can bring old t-shirts, fabric or other material to make into bags.
This bag-making session is part of SEED Lab’s Seeding Repair & Reuse Wednesday evening series that includes all types of mending and clothing repair, jewelry repair, bike tips and repair, writing and more.
