My latest clothes upcycle for my clothes upcycling challenge this year is this cute Snoopy bag made from a shirt and pair of pants.
The shirt was from Universal Studios and had plenty of features to make use of for this bag.
The main picture of Snoopy was on the back of the shirt.
Then there were cute pockets and printed Snoopy fabric on the cuffs and inside the collar.
Plenty of usable fabric and interesting parts
The white pants provided a nice light contrast to the dark shirt for the lining.
From my own stash I added a long zip , a keyring and a swivel clasp,
(all upcycled from other bags etc)
The cuffs from the shirt made a couple of nice ready-made pockets with 2 simple rows of stitching up the sides. One I stitched to the lining of the bag, and the other I attached to the keyring as a removable pouch for keys or money.
I'm very pleased with the final bag.
There are a few scraps left from the 2 clothing items, I'm sure I'll be able to use them for another project.
Including the labels which I'm saving from all the clothes - not sure what I'm going to do with them, but I'll think of something!
To see what else I've made/upcycled so far from clothes for the school carnival, go here.
And to keep up with what I'm up to with upcycling and sewing, I'd love if you followed me on Facebook.
Keep coming back for lots more clothes upcycling and sewing projects - including plenty of free tutorials.
I'll be linking this post to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons can be found on the bottom of this page and direct links on my linky party page.
