- Old piece of Denim clothing (I used a skirt)
- Contrasting fabric (for the lining)
- Sewing materials
- Button, Ribbon, Fabric Scraps and Brooch back for flower (optional)
I turned the skirt inside out and then sewed straight along the bottom. For the lining I used a cream material (from an old curtain!) and to work out the size, I folded it in half, traced around the skirt then cut to size leaving a seam allowance.
I've started using it to store any 'projects in progress' - which at the moment is attempting to learn how to knit!!
It was really satisfying to make this and am now wondering what other types of bag to try and make! Any ideas?!
