The blog on recycling fabric inspired me to finally make a denim bag – something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. I used an old pair of jeans and left over scraps of fabrics for the exterior and I also used the scraps as the lining. With some leftover silk, I made a little scarf to wrap around the bag handle. The bag’s big enough to almost fit an A3 paper :)
I also used the back pockets of my jeans as mobile and ipod holders inside the bag :p
- old jeans
- leftover cotton fabric
- some piece of silk chiffon
- long leather bag handle
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
