Old shorts-new bags




"Upcycling" is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of equal or better quality." Like my hubby's old shorts, or my old jeans. You know the ones, we all have them. We will never fit into them again, ever, never. So I decided to figure out how to use them for my handbags. A little different from my normal bags I've been making from the upholstery samples I have. Here are two that I have come up with so far. The pink one, I gave to my niece for Christmas. The yellow one might end up on my Etsy site. This process is old to many of you, new to me. Although I do remember, long ago, we used to turn our old jeans into skirts.... What do you think?
