I’ve made bags before and I’ve made shorts before (pyjama shorts with two seams count, right?) but I’ve never attempted making a bag from a pair of shorts.
***Brief interlude: I just realised I’ve been spelling pajamas (American) instead of pyjamas (other English). Devs!***
I’ve got my SIL’s (that’s sister-in-law) 21st this weekend. She’s a fashion designer so something quirky was always going to be on the cards for a gift, when I saw this which totally got the creative juices flowing.
I wrote a post about a month ago saying I had a big pile of clothes in my wardrobe stashed away for refashion/repurpose projects?! I’ve managed to cut that down a fair bit over the last month…then I found some more! Whoops! In there were these pair of pants.
The pants were going to produce the perfect-sized bag, which meant I didn’t need to pull apart the waistband or anything crazy like that. I unpicked the inner leg and crotch seams and trimmed off the curve (any of you who have made pants before know what I’m talking about) – and this was the only material I had left over come completion!
