i felt bad for not sharing yet so here goes-
i'm trying to teach my youngest sister that not everything awesome comes from a store. so for her 10th b-day, i had her gather up some of her old clothes for me to cut up and put back together into something she could use. now she has a new school bag made out of 2 pairs of pants, an old set of scrubs, cute t-shirts she couldn't fit into anymore, a couple of key rings, a bit of pink chain, and some patches from a hoodie that she wore into the ground. my mom's only request was that she could unlock the door without losing her keys. so here goes. hope you like  Grin

Great job combining elements for the bag. It is super cute and perfect for a girl her age (not babyish, but sweet.) It looks like a sturdy construction.

The cats know where my Sharpie went but they ain't tellin'.

i had to have help from the blondelings (sisters) to make it match.  Undecided

the straps are brown denim pants cut up the leg in an even strip. then i took a strip of turquoise 1/3 the width of what i cut the brown. then folded the brown over into thirds, then under again for a hem. -ironing every fold flat along the way. then i stitched the folds closest to the turquoise to avoid slippage. finally i sewed near the edge on both sides to make it lay flat.
i hope that made sense..

thank you sooo much for commenting!!
and my ego thanks you for complimenting!  Grin
