Creative Wellbeing: Tote Bags

Getting stuck in!

On Saturday I ran a session on making and decorating Tote Bags as part of the excellent Creative Wellbeing Project at Carlisle's YMCA Shaddongate Resource Centre.

Preparing embellishments

It was a really nice session with a lovely group of people who all made beautiful bags. Most of the materials were either from charity shops or my own wardrobe so it was great to see them being given a new life. Everyone came up with different ideas and designs and created something unique and personal.
