Skirt plus Half an Hour equals Bag

Couldn't resist such pretty material so I bought a Primark skirt which was too big from a charity shop.  I was going to use it for scraps but a bag just jumped out at me.
Half an hour later I'd cut off the bottom to create straps, stitched up fabric and lining and added buttons, nothing more.  Et voila!
This is a disastrous photo I tried to take to show what it looked like in situ.  Doh!
Grandbaby C No. 2's cardi is now complete.  It's a much prettier green really.
... and finally...
Can you believe Aldi has retro style?  I couldn't resist this lovely vintage-y set of kitchen accessories!


  1. I love your clever skirt bag, I will keep my eyes open for funky skirts in the charity shops from now on.
    Beautiful little cardie too.

  2. The skirt bag's a fantastic idea, very pretty, very functional and very it!

  4. Love the skirt bag! It's such a fab wide shape. I always carry so much crap round with me that I just can't like the thought of small bags.
