I'm a massive fan of upcycling and love the way this pretty bag makes use of upcycled fabric. Just been thinking how many different colours you could use to make this. Perhaps the best thing is if you choose the right fabric, this bag can be washed. It's so much nicer to keep a fresh, clean handbag.

I was drawn to this project because of the colours of the bag and its shape. I was surprised to read that this was made using recycled clothing. I think that is such a good idea. I just didn't see any instructions for attaching the button snap thing inside the purse. How does one attach such a closure?

This pattern uses skirts you're no longer wearing, but I think I can use my outdated scarves I've been saving forever! I just couldn't bring myself to throw them away! I didn't know how long it would take for scarves to come back in style, but this purse is a better idea! lol
