To jump start the day, I warmed up my sewing machine with a Friday night appetizer of sewing.
Here is the tasty morsel - a cute tote bag for any boy.
The main body if the bag is upcycled denim from my favorite blue jeans that were uber soft, but had a rip on the rear check. The outside pocket is this fun rocket fabric that glows in the dark. How cool is that?
And, I've line it with a complimentary yellow polka dot and with a patch pocket.
This is one of my donations for the upcoming Art in the Bag fundraiser benefitting the Beads of Courage program at Omaha's Children's Hospital and Medical Center. www.artinthebag.com
I used her design for inspiration but scaled down my pattern pieces to work with the jeans denim. I also substituted cream web strapping for fabric handles to make the bag more rugged and because the color I had at home matched perfectly.
My next project of the day, after I've hadmy coffee is to finish this upcycled sling bag from my husband's cargo pants.
