My first bag ever - oh well, I made one in kindergarten but other than that  Grin

I cut off the lower part of the leg of an old pair of corduroy pants and used the bottom hem as the top of the bag. The handle is just the bottom hem of the other leg, trimmed as close to the seam as possible.



And for Christmas I wanted something small to put my meds and other important small stuff in for our dinner at grandma's. I had the above bag with me so I made a small purse to put in it, using the top of a skirt. All I did was cut, sew together and put in a band for closure at the top - the "quilting" of the fabric was already there  Smiley


The size is about 3.5x3.5 inches

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!

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
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

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

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
