New upcycled bag design

I am delighted to finally share my new design:)

Ladies Shoulder Bag

The bag started off as a skirt and a pair of trousers.  It took far too long to finally finish the bag, but I love the finished result:) Creating a dilemma as to whether to add it to my Etsy shop or keep it for myself!

Upcycled Skirt Bag

I found a fab tutorial I used for creating the handles. The bag measures 16 x 31 x 9 cm.

Internal bag

The bag is the perfect size for carrying round the essentials, with an internal zip pocket. Who doesn’t like a pocket?!

Mini IPAD case

I am delighted there was sufficient fabric to make a co-ordinating tablet case from the remaining fabric. This time with the trousers as the external fabric and the skirt as the lining.

With five knitting needle cases made this week I feel as though I am getting back on track for stocking my etsy shop for Christmas Sales:) I hope you have had an equally productive week.

As usual I am hopping by Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else’s week has been like,

  1. Wow – I love this bag, the shape and the fabric! It is similar to some Cath Kidson ones which I like but don’t own! Is there a pattern? There’s no way it’s go in my shop! that is my trouble – I want to keep everything I make so takes ages to build up stock 🙂

  2. I LOVE this bag Vicky – the handles are such a good design, I’ll be checking out that tutorial myself! You’re certainly powering on for getting stocked for Christmas!

  3. LOVE your bag. The size and the wide opening look perfect. This is the best ‘refashion’ I’ve seen in a long time. If you’re looking for another place to share your projects, stop by Etcetorize and join our Make it Monday party. (There’s a giveaway for linked up entries.)
