DIY - how to create a bag from a skirt

This easy DIY project is made with two recycled fashion items: a skirt and a braided belt. I love to create something new from something old. I bought both the skirt and the belt at a local thrift store for three Euro’s total. I think it’s a lovely gift for a teenage girl. My skirt bag now belongs to my sister!

How to make this skirt bag

1.  Lay down your materials.

3. Fold the fabric like shown in the picture and pin. Sew together.
4. Attach the belt to the skirt. You can do this my making two little holes in the fabric on both sides of the skirt bag. Put the ends of the braided leather belt through the holes and make a knot.

    Very cute. Love the idea. Have made a couple of purses out of old blue jeans. Can’t wait to try this, too.
