Made with a tutorial by Sew Modern Bags. The original pattern has a flap.
Made with recycled fabrics. The black polyester was pants. The black and white cotton check was the lining of a coat. The black and beige cotton was a shirt. These will stand many cycles in the washing machine. No, I didn’t have black elastics. But I don’t mind it being white—the bags are more colorful. 😉
As I made it as a gift for my father, I chose a robust material—jeans. I also added a zipper to ensure the content will remain inside when he goes biking or fishing. I would not want him to loose his keys in a river…
Everything come from old clothes, including the metal pieces that were attached to the navy twill tape (they were sewn on a child overalls) .
