What do you get when you take a corduroy skirt with a funky leather laceup, a logo t-shirt and a webbed belt?
Only the coolest REPURPOSED bag that the coolest auntie will probably give to her coolest niece this Christmas. (of course at the risk that I have NO idea what cool is). Denise: if you are reading this, don’t say a word, or show her…
Check out how cool the tshirt lining turned out…
Other than the
belt strap stitching, she may even choose to carry it inside-out.
I grabbed a scrap of the corduroy and zig-zagged the inside back of the shirt to it…I love the pocket..!!!
It’s a little big ( I think the skirt was a size 16) so maybe next time I’d look for something a bit smaller, but it’s still a good size for schoolbooks.
What I learned:
#1 my sewing machine is not strong enough to go through 8 layers of corduroy….I broke one needle and bent one.
#2 I can do this (!) in an evening or less…
#3 I think I need to set up a corner downstairs…I went to the vintage shops today and picked up some really cool funky retro fabrics. I might even try to follow a pattern for those.
#4 D-Rings are stupid expensive. Buy webbed belts at the vintage shops for a quarter and cut’em off.
I rock. Who knew?
