Recycling hoarded fabrics

Finding myself re-stacking duvet covers and curtains which we no longer use I thought they'd make some shoppers/totes. :sign7: :sign7: They did, took a couple of handfuls to the foodbank who were calling for 'bags for life', some to charity shops, because I haven't the front to stand around handing ...
