This bag is for the awesome Imee! She gave me those red polka dot pajamas (that didn’t quite fit her) and a gray skirt that had the cutest rouching down the back! and asked me to make her a reversible tote with them. Here is there before picture.
I went to the thrift store and found a great men’s shirt to use as a side panel to match the gray side, and to use to line the pockets. And then I used a white mens shirt to make the side panel for the red polka dot side, and also the pockets.
Usually the shirts have two pockets and I’m able to remove them from the shirt and place them appropriately on the bags, but with this shirt it only had one, so I had to go ahead and make some pockets from scratch using the buttons that run down the front of the shirt, and I actually love how they turned out =)
She requested that the bag be extra sturdy so all the pictures that you see were taken without having to stuff the bag at all! I interfaced it like crazy =)
I still have 2 more custom totes to finish this weekend and just got orders for 2 more…woah. Looks like I won’t be sleeping for the next couple of weeks!
*****Each product is handmade from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
