Recently my friend brought me something in her shopping bag. However, it was so broken that it would not even have been possible to repair it. That’s why I came up with something special as a gift.
As you can see in the picture on the left, the bag was really carried to death. Apparently it is a very perfect size and so I tried to sew the new bag as close as possible to the old one.
The base material is an old pair of jeans of a relatively large size. The legs were cut off and the crotch adjusted accordingly.
So that the purchases can stand well in the bag, I sewed a wide base from part of the trouser leg.
I paid particular attention to the details. The cut-off waistband of another pair of jeans (top right) serves as a closure and part of the trouser leg has been processed as an inside pocket (bottom left), which can be closed with a button.
I particularly like the back with the embroidered pocket (picture below right). The pendant with the shopping trolley coin is very practical (picture above left).
I “restored” the original straps from the old bag and sewed them onto the new bag.
The shopping bag can also be made very small by simply rolling it together and wrapping it with the straps. So it fits into the handbag and is always at hand when you need it. With this contribution I take part in the link party “Nix Plastik” by 123-Nadelei . With the promotional shopping bag made of plastic? No thanks. she would like to make a contribution to avoid plastic bags. The topic is also topical at Schiller’s Platzli . The campaign started with the contribution NO to PLASTIK – JA zu STOFF . Here you will find the information about the link party and I am taking this post in the current month of May
