Recycled Bags and Giveaway

hope you're having a happy Sunday :)

first of all..there's a giveaway event from my Etsy shop.
Just visit Samantha's blog here. It ends until April 11, 2011. Please join to win a cute pouch.

Like I said on my last post, I made another recycled bags.
From my old jeans...
I made a casual style clutch. I used my old jeans for the flap and handle.
For the body and lining of the clutch I used new light jeans fabric. Look at the cute animal prints on it and the Indonesian wood handcarved button. Beautiful isn't it?

the other bag...is a tote.
I used thick cotton kitchen towel that I bought from a local kitchen equipment stote.
I just fall in love at the first sight when I saw the tartan plaid pattern.
The color is so soft, too beautiful for a towel :)
For the lining I also use another kitchen towel, but in different texture..its lines pattern is a bit protude.

Both of the bags are now available on my Etsy shop.


Recycled my Old Jeans into "New Shorts"

Today is saturday here. I always love weekends!
Last night I found that my favorite jeans has already faded at the front and has a hole. I just can't throw it away.
I was thinking to recycle it ...so I cut it into shorts.

put a stripe of red paisley pattern fabric and sew it like this.

What do you think?
I love my "new shorts"!!
By the way I still have the left over jeans fabric from the pants.
I'm thinking to recycle and transform it into something cute like clutch maybe..
I'll let you know in my next post.

For now...have a great weekend to you :)
