Last year's tote bags from SxSW were adorable, but not really big enough to be useful to me as totes. So I turned them into a dress ^^







I used McCall's M6085 dress pattern and just cobbled the pieces together to fit the pattern.

I did a longer version made from Tumblr tote bags, too:

They are both so cute!  What a clever idea, and great re-use!

Great dresses! That's super clever. I would have never thought of turning tote bags into a dress. Great job.

As soon as I read 'tote bags' and 'dress' in the same line, I had to click on your project. It is soooo wonderful!  I can see a whole line of these things going for hundreds of bucks at some bigwig store. What a great job you did!!

These are absolutely adorable! I love the shape/style, and the designs of the tote bags make it really interesting to look at.

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

The idea of recycling tote bags into dresses is so amazing in itself and the dresses look so cool. Im really impressed with your creativity. What a way to craft gorgeous new dresses without spending a dime!!
