*SOLD*LumberJack’s Pot of Gold!

Part 3 of “The Pot of Gold” line is here!

The Front and Back face are made out of an LL Bean Men’s plaid shirt.

The side panel is made from a T-shirt and the lining is from curtains.

This entire tote is triple interfaced with 2 types of interfacing, which makes it stand up on it’s own. and has a pocket on the inside.

This is the last bag this size I can make from this plaid shirt because well…there’s no more shirt left! It’s possible I can scrounge a few scraps for a smaller bag but we’ll see. And I may only have enough curtain left for one for “Pot of Gold” =(

*SOLD* Tiffany’s Theatre Tote!!

This bag was inspired by my good friend Tiffany who participated in all the high school musicals with me.  We have a million and one story’s from “the good ol days” so I couldn’t help but name this bag after her =)

The front and back are made from a t-shirt, the side panel is made from a beautifully textured curtain valance, as well as the back Gold pocket.  And the inside is lined with a deep red curtain.

The black and red contrast is so eye catching!

I’m tempted to take this one around town with me =)

But I can’t because the beautiful Casey from NYC, with the longest eyelashes you’ve ever seen has purchased it for herself!

I hope you love it as much as I do!  Enjoy it Casey!

Clothes in Progress

I’m currently working with these two skirts on a bag that “should” be done tomorrow.  Hopefully all will go well.  I just wanted to show you all the “before” shots of my work, because I’m the only one who gets to enjoy the reconstruction process.  Maybe this will become as exciting for you as it is for me =)  I absolutely love the creating process!

*SOLD*The LumberJack and his Lady!

This particular bag, “LumberJack and his Lady” is off the market, but more bags will be coming as I make them.  Every tote is made from second hand clothing and is completely one of a kind.  It’s my way of going green and staying in style.  Enjoy!  And if you’d like to purchase one please visit my etsy store.  Thanks and please enjoy these designs by PunkyJ!

This bag was made out of a men’s wool button down shirt.  The pockets on the back were removed from the front and re-applied to the back.  The lining is from a skirt I found at the local thrift store, and the side panels are made of a black t-shirt.  It is complete with 3 layers of interfacing to keep it sturdy and only the handles are store bought from the fabric store.

In the future I will include before and after pictures of the garments used so that you will have an idea of where these items all came from.  And because I’m not working with flat store bought fabric, you may find a seam in an unusual spot or many other special character traits that make these functional pieces of art unique!
