A guild member had dozens of insulated metallic cold shipping pouches left over from the holidays and put forth an upcycle challenge. Ha! I could do this! I found the 15-Minute Water Bottle Sling pouch pattern. It looked easy, quick, simple and would do nicely as a Scrap Happy project. The insulated shipping pouch would make the perfect liner. How smug I was.
Well, it took me more than 15 minutes to make. More like 2 hours. The insulated mailer was very slippery and difficult to work with. I must have picked out my machine stitches five times. Definitely not the best sew job. However, I am happy that I can help to reduce environmental waste (however small) and use up scraps!
Have a good week – – Joanne!
