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!
