So remember last week when I said I was purging? Well that may have resorted in a few more projects! ha! What can I say I hate to waste perfectly good materials- especially when you have a great idea. Since going to Cal Poly and being enrolled in many sustainable classes that stressed being eco friendly, thinking innovatively and recyingly- it kinda has snuck it’s way into my life here and there. No I don’t have a compost pile (although I would like one soon!), no I don’t re-use my shower water to water the plants (sorry!), buttttttt today I will save some paper/plastic bags! And hey that’s a step in the right direction. Plus I will do it oh so stylishly….
I started by cutting my jeans at the knee…
Next I turned the jeans inside out….
To create my “bag” I needed to stitch up the bottom hole…
Once I had it all stitched up I turned the bag back inside out to have normal seems…
Next I measured my belt so that I had about a six inch long strip…snip!
And lastly I snipped the connecting side…
Now it’s time to connect the belt to the jeans, this part was a little trickier for me since I had to do it all right side out plus make sure it was straight. You will want to leave about a hand’s width flap to create the section where you will “roll” up your lunch pale.
And then attach your smaller side of the belt to the bottom of the jeans…
Here is the completed top!
Stuff your baggie, roll up the top and it’s ready to be fastened!
Saving bags couldn’t be much more stylish?
Happy Friday Zesties!
