Let's travel in a time machine back to the first semester of 1st year university! Yaaaay!
Ok, so there's no time machine actually required, but let's take a look at one of my projects from way back then.
THE DENIM PROJECT: take
a pair of jeans and hem, mend, or turn them into something else. I
chose the last option. RECYCLING! ;D
I picked a pair of black jeans (they were super faded and no longer look black) that I had worn a hole in the inner thigh that was going to be a pain to fix, (This ALWAYS happens to all my jeans.) and I got paint on them too.
I took these 2 pieces and surged them together. Because I had access to the school's serger. Sooo nice. I want one...
There is a bit of a gap in documentation here, as I forgot my camera, and then I lost my camera. So yeah.... There aren't any pictures of how this went together until after I finished the project... hahaha
What I did next: I created the back panel of the bag using 2 rectangles of fabric from the legs, Then I attached the butt-pocket rectangle for the flap. Then I added another long rectangle for a side/bottom piece. Unfortunately I ran out of fabric at this point and had to find another pair of trashed jeans the same colour to make the handle. :P
Here's the finished pics! 1 year later! Yay!
My fabulous messenger bag. :D
