Back in May I did a month of clothes upcycling projects. Since then, 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?
