this would have been something for the recycling challenge, but too late...
Nevertheless, here it is, my super recycled messenger bag, which I gave to a friend as a birthday present. It is made of an advertising tarp (don't know if this is the right word for it), and I used this tutorial: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html
this is the tarp
and this is the finished bag:
inside with zipper:
and again the whole thing from the top
btw it was awful to work with such a stiff material, but I'm happy with the result and it was the perfect birthday present for my friend who loves soccer...
thanks for looking!
and now I'm hopefully in the right board... (reconstructed... )
