Want to do something good with old fabric? Totes!

Your old clothes can carry on and on.

Oh, hey, you love The Strand? Us too! While it’s hard to argue with the merits of reusable tote bags — something about the environment, I think? — the folks at Williamsburg craft resource SPACECRAFT invite you to put down your Strand/Park Slope Food Coop/n+1 portable advertisement and pick up a needle and thread. This Saturday from 2-5pm, anti-plastic crusaders from Bags for the People will be on hand to lead Brooklynites through the basics of making reusable shopping bags with personal flair. Just BYO fabric scraps — an old shirt works, too — and for a $7 suggested donation, they’ll have stitching your way to sustainability in no time.

SPACECRAFT, is at 355 Bedford Ave. between S. 3rd and S. 4th Streets.
