Since I started working, I always opted to bring my own lunch. And my mother would put my eating utensils in a small clear disposable plastic bag. Since I wanted to go green by recycling some stuffs found around he house, I thought it would be a great idea to make a small bag for my spoon and fork.
I had this sudden stroke of genius and thought of using umbrella sleeves/cover (I really don't know what it's called. Look at picture for reference.). We have a lot of this lying around because I live in a tropical country.
Step 1: Materials
-corded rope/ shoelace
-cutter or blade
Step 2: Open seams
Open seams of the flap using a blade or cutter or any sharp tool. Be extra careful in handling any sharp objects!
Now you have holes where the rope would go in.
Step 3: Sew the seams
Sew the seams. Be careful not to sew them together.
Do this with the other hole.
Step 4: Insert rope
Insert corded rope through one hole and out at other. To make this step easier, tie one end of the rope to a safety pin. This will make inserting the rope more hassle free.
Then tie both ends together
Step 5: Insert spoon and fork
Use bag everyday to reduce usage of plastic bags! :3
