Adorable! I love the owl
Thank you Smiley

I've no idea who the characters are but I love the bag!!  Cheesy Great job re-purposing some old curtains!
Thank you Smiley
Just keeping my fingers crossed that my brother won't be mad at me for cutting the curtains Wink

I found some old curtains when going through an old box the other day. My brother and I had these curtains in our room when we where kids - I don't know what the characters are called in English though - maybe someone can help me out?

Edit: I don't know if the show was ever shown anywhere outside Europe, but it's a Dutch animation series called De Fabeltjes Krant in original.

That is adorable, and looks soo easy! Brown and Blue look soo good together!
Thank you it was VERY easy to make, just cut and stitch Wink
But it's actually black, not brown - although I wanted brown but didn't have any Wink

Wow, you did a great job! I love that you used the leg of your cords for the bag. Why sew any more seams than you have to? Very clever, and great use of recycled fabric! Love it! Nice job on the little drawstring bag, too.

Thank you Smiley

There'll probably be some more "leg bags" as I have dozens of pants lying around Wink

Wow!! I really love everything you've made but especially the wallets on the second set of pictures and the purse with the shoulder strap from 2007 xmas collection (where can I find a pattern for such a purse?)
do you mean the beige one with straps ? or the big one made in PVC ? (that's the problem with some many pics  Wink)
if it's the beige one, it's the only thing i haven't done... i just put felt shapes on it... but i will try to find one like those and tell you how it's done..
cheers !

yes, I meant the beige one
I did have a pattern for something similar to that one but I've lost it so any help in finding a new one is appreciated

I really like the knitting bag the cord looks great, nice and sturdy. And I have a little drawstring bag in my crochet bag so I thought it was neat that you did too. Smiley Mine holds all my stitch markers, scissors, and such so I don't have to riffle through the bigger bag for them.
Very nice projects!
Thank you
Yes the bag is really sturdy and I'll be making some more of them eventually. I'll probably make a few more of the drawstring bag as well - you can neer have too many of those, can you? Smiley

I love them both! I think I will have to try making some bags similar to yours - I do have tons of clothes that need to be recycled Wink Thanks for sharing!
Thank you
They were both very easy to make - took under an hour each and considering they are my first bag projects I'm sure they'll sew up even quicker for someone with a little more sewing experience Smiley

Thank you Smiley

I really like the two in the middle. Great job!
Thank you Smiley

Adorable!! I'm in the same boat as you - lost 37 pounds and can't afford to keep buying new clothes, I just wish I was as good with sewing as you are so I could start transforming some of my 'fat' clothes lol.
Thank you Smiley
And congrats on your weight loss.

Actually I'm not that good with sewing either, but I so much wanted to make something to wear for Christmas and just set myself to do it.

For the red skirt I used a very simple skirt pattern I found in a magazine and put the pattern parts on the cut up legs of the pants. I'm sure you can do it too - use a pair of your 'fat' pants and just go for it - you really have nothing to lose.

The other three skirts I just cut off - they were leftovers from my 'old thin days' so they actually fit again - it would probably be a bit harder if the skirts are too wide to start with.

Thank you Smiley

Actually I didn't know how my sewing machine would like the felt and also being a bit lazy I just decided to go with handstitching Wink
