Eco-Chic Floral Totecomments (3) July 31st, 2008 in gallery
My friends had a clothes swap and I got this pretty a-line skirt. It was too small for me, but I was in love with the embroidered flower. So, I decided to make it into a tote bag.
I trimmed off the bottom and top of the skirt and sewed a bottom "I" seam. I removed the zipper and sewed up the back seam. I then used a wide grosgrain ribbon for the top binding and handles.
This bag is entered into the Eco-Chic category.
This project deserves recognition because is an easy project to make and is the perfect answer to re-using old clothing.
