    It would need to be today/ this eve as it’s for a post tomorrow.

    Please email me on the address supplied if you are able to help, I would be v grateful.

    Best wishes

    I tried it out today and it was pretty fun and ended up looking good but it took so long to make that the iron was on for ages. It might have been worth it if I’d used up loads of bags by weaving them together or something.

    If this is our Abbie R and I think might be – is that your mums iron? am I in trouble? I am posting soon about knitting up plastic bags into all manner of things. That might be better. Take care x
