I had the most amazing pair of jeans. I had them forever and forever and then, the inevitable happened…..I blew them out. No. Seat. Left.
So. Instead of tossing them, I got green. I whipped them up into a clever handbag with some old silk that I tea dipped from another project. I loved the combination. I decided that it needed a little bling.
Cute pin, found! All of these items added up to one super cute bag.
I like to try and put a lot of details into the bags. All of my bags are double lined, meaning that they are lined with the original lining and also a layer of felt. This adds to the strength of the bag when using repurposed products.
I made one of these as a prototype. I use it…every…day. I love it. It’s perfect for all of the day to day things I carry and it’s light even with all those things.
This bag’s particular back story will be included on a card within so that the person for whom you are gift giving (Even if it is for yourself) will be able to enjoy the journey of these garments.
