Recycled Denim Skirt
Posted July 2, 2010on:
My daughter is the original recycler- this is a project she made from an old recycled denim skirt:
“This is the bag I made out of the top of a denim skirt that needed to be desperately thrown out. I had cut it off the skirt a few years ago and only now finally made s/t with it, so I was a bit limited with the size and all.”
“All the outside pockets can be used; the back one I use for my cell phone. The handle is nylon webbing attached to a padded strap from a laptop bag- but covered with cotton velvet and topstitched with a decorative stitch (I only have about 4 of them on my machine :-/)”
“Inside I used a loose weave cotton (I had bought for a wrap, but didn’t work out) lined with a waterproof nylon fabric for the four pockets- all different sizes, two with velcro closures. The top closure is with two size #5 zippers, opening from the center, so the fly of the skirt/bag can still be opened🙂 (for no other reason, except I thought it would be cool!)”
Reinventing denim clothing is very popular and I hope you readers out there will share one of your projects, too!!
