This is such a great tally.
Tokyo bags have been busy on a different eco project. We made 414 eco chopstick rolls for people to carry around their own chopsticks. We made these for the Australia day charity ball that Kristen is helping to organise and I am one of the sponsors. The charities are mainly eco charities so we made these "MyHashi" based on a pattern that Kristen developed. See her Blog here for the pattern
Disposable wooden chopsticks are used everywhere here. 63 million pairs a day in Japan alone. That means deforestation and landfill for the disposal. So a movement encouraging people to carry their own chopsticks is starting to take off.
Now that this project is done, we can make some more morsbags. We have lots of things coming up. The workshop and giveaway at the kindergarten, publicity and also a girl scout group is keen to make Morsbags a project for the 9th graders.
Am so looking forward to morsbags as the MyHashi were a tad fiddly. Plus we were on a deadline which is never fun when we work full time and have volunteer work as well. Also there were heaps to make and it got quite tedious after the first 300 or so....

for a photo of a pile of MyHashi. I used new fabric for this project as it was a sponsorship and we are saving all our donated fabric for mosbags.
Check my blog later for photos of Kristen and I in posh frocks and with our men all scrubbed and shiny.
