Letting the Fabric do the talking

While deciding on which fabrics to use in the making of wheel chair bags this month I came across a piece of fabric that I have no idea where or how I acquired it.

It is a mystery fabric with no information on the selvedges about the manufacturer or fabric content.

It is very light weight with a lovely drape and I knew immediately what to make with it... another bog coat.

In less that an hour here is how it came out:

It needs a press and I may add a closure but it does work the way it is and it definitely honors the 4,000 year old bog coat tradition.

I have a lot of posts of bog coats but if you need a reminder, extensive instructions are here.

Also, check out the current Threads magazine for even more no waste projects.
