A bag made entirely out of old stuff.
Okay so I was thinking about what to make as a second project with my sewing machine. I found this old blouse my stephfather used to wear in a bunch of clothes my mom wanted to throw away. I scurried the pile away to make an entire new bag. The outer fabric is a lovely vintage brown one with violins and flowers. The inner one is yellow and has bees on it, it was from an old shirt. The handles are uhm.. I'm not sure how it's called in english, but you kind of knit by hand, haha! I used an old woolen sweater for the wool. The buttons are from an old coat and the velcro is from an old bag. The only thing not-recycled is my sewing machine.

By the way: my crab plushie loves modeling, he says hi!
