hi all! this is my first entry, though i have been lurking about for a few years.





i had this bread wrapping at home, and i wanted to use it for something.
when this challenge came along, i thought i'd try  to do something with it.



i also had two pairs of shorts that i was getting rid of.



i decided to use the sturdier pair, and started dissecting it.

i covered the printed paper with adhesive plastic, and cut away the part that i didn't
want to use in this project.



after sewing the dissected shorts together the way i wanted them,
i attached the printed paper.



then i embroidered along some of the lines.



i made the lining out of an old blouse i was getting rid of.



to protect my groceries from the snow, i cut up an old bicycle inner tube that i found next to a dumpster, and the glued it together.



i cut out a piece of cardboard for the bottom and used it as a guide for inner tube.



i used glue and scissors to shape the inner tube.
then i sewed it on using the sewing machine.



i made shoulder straps from leftover fabric.
i decided i wanted to be able to close the pockets in the front,
so i made little straps for them.



i also added a few stitches to keep them from opening to easily.



i covered the buttons in red fabric that i had lying around.



i thought something was missing still, so i embroidered some details with yarn i had laying around.
i had to use pliers tough!



i broke three needles for the machine and one thick ordinary needle.
i also stabbed myself in the hand. small sacrifice to the craft gods.



at last i added the lining. (there are two pockets in there)



i like that it is so deep, that there are many pockets,
and that i can get the straps across my chest for heavy loads.

Very professional looking! And definitely feel you on the broken needles issues.

Also, your English was good! You write as good as most of the English speakers on the boards.

From all the shopping bags for this challenge, yours is the one I wish I owned! All the details are so pretty, the size is perfect, and the sturdy bottom is a very smart choice.

I am LOVING the details on this.  The embroidery, the buttons, and the colours are all so good together.  Just quite simply a really gorgeous piece of work.
