Yesterday I worked on more of my clothing-to-be-upcycled stash.
A few weeks ago I posted about ways to upcycle shorts and was really surprised at the lack of projects I could find! So I thought shorts would be a good thing to tackle!
I had 3 old pairs of board shorts that don't really fit me that well and the seams have ripped a little:
First I took the blue and white pair, cut the panels of fabric into 4 even sizes and pulled out the drawstring from the waist:
The other two pairs of shorts did not fit so easily into 4 even rectangles. Each pair had a pocket on the side,
so I cut the fabric a little bigger from these and used both pairs to make just one drawstring bag.
The drawstring from each pair was a different colour - but since each side of the bag is a different colour, I quite like the resulting effect of this.
The pocket pieces I used for the lining, so there are two pockets inside the bag:
So there you have it - two drawstring bags from 3 pairs of shorts!
Very simple to make, and a great way to upcycle those old shorts!
