I made a bag =)

I was buying a huge amount of fabric on a flee market last summer and the (very friendly!) old salesman gave me a bag to carry it. Immediately I thought it was a nice shaped bag but... brown, dirty and boring.


Some ten days ago I decided to take it appart, make a pattern from it and remake the bag with other fabrics. There were 3 dresses that attracted my attention...


I swear I never wore them  Cheesy
So I started measuring, drawing, cutting...


to make this purse!  Grin (see above)
Lil' close up:


I reused a pocket of the blue dress to make a front pocket. But also the pockets of the yellow dress I reused for inside pockets. Here's a picture where it is the most visible, I think.


The two other inside pockets I added myself:


The blue buttons are from the blue dress, but the buttonholes were from the front closure of the yellow dress.

Okay, this is the last picture. A shot from above. Don't you think it looks like a banana? Love it Smiley


And now I want to go to the beach (to clean of all the sweat) !!! Roll Eyes Tongue Grin Shocked Cool

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

Cool reuse idea! I love how you mismatched the dress fronts to get the pockets for the inside!

Great job on the sewing too!
