GreenCraft Magazine!

I am lucky to have a couple of upcycled bags in the Summer, 2015, issue of GreenCraft Magazine GREEN!  Please check out the magazine's "Gallery" section, pages 134-135 for my recycled and repurposed bags.
I don't really live in Minnesota...  


The handle is actually crocheted too.
