Handmade Recycled Dark Blue Needlecord Bag

Handmade Recycled Dark Blue Needlecord Bag

Love this


I made this bag out of a recycled dark navy cotton needlecord (a lightweight corduroy) shirt from Bridport in Dorset. It is lined with a recycled kilt which features a bright tartan in shades of blue, red, and green. There are two pockets inside; one taken from the original shirt and one in tartan and lined with needlecord. It fastens at the top with a vintage red wooden button taken from a coat, and the handles are sized so the bag can be carried over the shoulder or in the hand.

Robust, practical and perfect for stuffing with books, umbrellas, water, purses, make-up bags, random shopping etc. It is also quite lightweight, folds up very neatly and so would be great for taking away on a city break or weekend away.

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. 37 cm high by 42 cm wide, and all fabrics pre-machine washed.
