This week I made a start on the tank tops in my pile of clothes to be upcycled.
I love my Lorna Jane tank tops and wear them over and over until they are stretched and saggy but I still can't bear to get rid of them!
So - yesterday I cut up the first pink tank top and made a sports bag using the quote from the front as the front pocket of the bag and fabric and zips from my stash.
I used my own duffel bag tutorial which gives measurements for 4 different sizes to make.
This one however, is a different size again - the same as another sports bag I made for myself three years ago - also with a worn and stretched Lorna Jane top!
I put just one zipped pocket on the inside of this new one - always useful to have.
And the main bag zip has two zip pulls on it - this was a reclaimed zip from an old backpack of my daughters.
This bag has gone to my younger daughter who I know will get good use out of it!
Here's a selection of some of the duffel bags I've made using this pattern.
I use my Sports Duffel Bag every week, and my daughters use theirs for swimming each week too.
I hope my daughter gets as much use out of her new bag too!
Do come back next week to see what I make using the remaining three tank tops!
