Bag to Pillow
I bought this bag almost 10 years ago from GAP. I loved the car print and the fact that I could fit textbooks and notebooks in it for school. I haven't used the bag very much in several years. I'm trying to clean out purses and decide if I should refashion them or donate them. This bag was put in the refashion pile.
I cut the bag (through the front and back pieces of material) with a straight line. Then I just simply stitched the opening closed! I left a hole big enough to stuff the bag then I finished sewing. I did a zigzag seam to match the green seam.
This pillow will be going to my brother. He has a Camero (different year model than the one on the bag) and just moved into a larger house-- he needs stuff to decorate with!
This wallet will soon be mailed to a friend that just had her second baby boy. It's the perfect size to tuck in a gift card and great to throw in a diaper bag.
I used the same material as the wallet to make this wine bag. I think it could also be used to hold silk flowers!
