Which I turned into a simple tote:
I thought I'd share the process with you, it's an easy upcyle project and would make a cool library tote or the like.
The first step was to chop off the sleeves and neckline:
Then I stitched together the bottom edges:
Pinched together the points and sewed across to give the bottom a boxier look:
Then I sewed the armholes together leaving about 1 1/2" at the top:
Then I grabbed the sleeves and cut them into 1/2" strips and joined them until they were around 30" in length:
Then tied a knot in the end and plaited them:
I made a casing at the top of the bag and slipped the plait through:
Then stitched the ends together and made a loop: (slip it around and hide this bit in the casing)
And that's it, quick and easy...and cute!
