Remember this pair of pants? I cut it up and made it into a flouncy skirt, blogged here... So what did I do with the legs of the pants?
As they are in very good condition, I decided to do something with it. I made a sling bag for HQ.
I named it Memory Bag, as this pair of pants held many good memories for my boy :-).
For the strap, I attached a strap from his first drinking bottle... another memory to behold :-). Coincidentally, the colour of the strap matches the stitches beautifully.
I have this little blue iron-on plane applique in my stash... and it completes the look of the bag really well :-). Took this opportunity to practice sewing zippers again... The zipper opens to a lined interior, which was an Ikea cotton fabric.
My boy finds it spacious enough for many little dinosaur figurines, a small wallet, and a packet of tissue. Great for going out! So, that's how a much loved pair of khaki pants is loved again :-).
