LONG time, no blog, I know!! It's so weird but I feel like I'm busier in the summer than during the school year, with work and summer classes right now. But, nonetheless, I've been a DIY crazed fool lately! This is a simple one, since I'm trying to get a bunch of posts typed up today I thought I'd start out with a super easy way to recycle your old bags! Since I've been home from college for the summer, I did a huge closet clean out. I donated a ton of things, but some I held onto simply because I think I can make them into something else!
I started with a super old purse. I found this bag in my closet, which I've probably had since I was in elementary school.
First, to make the bracelet, it's super easy. All I did was cut the strap off the purse and tie the ends. Then I fit it around my wrist and tied it together around my wrist.
Next, I took the actual bag part of the purse and sewed a button on the front. Since my bag is a straw-like material to begin with, it was simple to fold the top of the bag over and stick the button through it. If yours is a different material, you may have to cut a button hole.
Now you're done! You've recycled your old bag and made some stylish accessories for the summertime!
I hope you all enjoyed!
