I made this bag out of a recycled dusty pink cotton needlecord skirt found in Southampton and lined it with cotton from a red, white and blue checked cotton man's shirt.
It features the original skirt pockets built in to the design on the outside (back and front), and another pocket inside. It fastens at the top with a plain blue zip with a pull tag, and has a blue webbing handle so it can be worn on the shoulder or across in a cross-body style. A great size for walking, shopping trips, and city breaks as it folds away flat.
Because each of my bags started as something else (a wool kilt, a tweed jacket, a cotton shirt) they come with a unique numbered card that shows what they used to be, and where they came from – a sort of bag birth certificate.
If your bag gets grubby after a few months of bouncing around on public transport and out shopping, you can machine wash it on a gentle wool setting. All the materials I use are machine washed before the stitching starts, so they are used to it.
approx. 35 cm high by 31 cm wide
strap is non-adjustable and approx. 117 cm long
(contents not included!)
I made a little zipped pouch with the leftover fabric and will add this to your parcel too.
