Back in May I did a month of clothes upcycling projects. It was a very successful month - and also kicked off my long term linky where everyone can share their own clothes upcycles. We have over 600 links now and it's still growing! So if you need some inspiration for what to do with those old clothes - or you have a project of your own you'd like to share - go here
Anyway - since May, when I completely cleared my stash of old clothes - the pile has been steadily replaced my yet more worn, outgrown and no longer loved items of clothing, so I thought it was time to get upcycling again.
I can't do a whole month again - so I'm going to stick to one a week!
Here's this week's effort:
Skirt to Bag Upcycle
The skirt was one of my daughter's which she'd grown out of. It had a lovely strip along the bottom which I cut off for the straps:
And the skirt already had a lining - which meant my bag was already lined when I made it!! Bonus!
I used an old belt buckle, and a scrap from my stash for the feature on the front:
I'm liking my new bag a lot! Of course being my favourite colour - purple, I would!
What do you think?
