I had in my closet a khaki green 3/4 length skirt which was very unflattering seeing as I am quite short. I needed a bag large enough to hold all of my assorted belongings, plus some nappies, wipes etc. So, I whipped this up:



This is a photo of me wearing the skirt - you can't see how awful it really was though Tongue



Thanks for looking - I am very pleased with it, I am relativly new to sewing, so I am trying to find various things to practise with! I was going to stencil something onto it, but a) I think it would bunch up and you wouldnt really see it, and b) I don't want to ruin it!

Great use of an item you weren't fond of!  Smiley  I like the shape of the bag, too.  Nice job!

wow great idea. I assuming you used the original waist of the skirt as the opening, which looks terrific.
