This bag is coming together so nicely! And since shirts are one of my favorite media to cut and sew I haven’t run into as many problems as I usually do =)
One thing that is always important for me to consider before I start a projects is how big the actual items are that I have to work with! Because with re-purposing items, I only get what I get and I can’t go to the fabric store and get a larger cut.
I’ve learned very quickly how important it is to measure twice and cut once, because there is no room for mistakes!
I love the colors that Carrie chose in this lot of shirts! Although the bag won’t have the capacity to feature all of them I was lucky that she had a variety of color options and prints. And OMG hilarious quotes!
My favorite being the one I’m using for the back pocket
The front says: “I’m the One”
The back says: “Your momma warned you about”
Funny right?! =)
So excited to get this one done! I’m in L.O.V.E with the colors on this one since I’m a huge fan of contrasting colors!
And since I’ve got the bright idea to make a holder for her Starbucks Iced Venti Sweetened Green Tea I have found a new rhythm! It’s little “inventions” and discovery’s like this that make me enjoy creating! It’s awesome never knowing what’s gonna come out next.
Can’t wait to see the final product! Keep an eye out for the final pictures!
And thanks for stopping by!
*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
