Upcycled hessian bag
Hi and welcome to my blog.
I want to show you some of my sewing exploits! Maybe you will get some ideas and tips - I know I have by looking at others' blogs!!
I originally bought this bag from my local library to carry my books in, but after a little while of use the handles broke apart. The hessian just wasn't strong enough but the rest of the bag looks as new. As I didn't want to throw it away, I thought I would decorate it.
The bag lacked somewhere to put your purse safely so I cut an old pair of shorts and used the leg pocket.
To brighten up the pocket I embroidered and appliqued some hearts on it.
I also found some pieces of gingham too small to make anything with.
I love this bag now it's so bright and cheerful and much more useful
Thanks for visiting
I would really appreciate any comments you would like to leave.
