UPCYCLING Projects

Posted on

Hi Everyone!

Hope all is well, and Blessed as I’m along with being so grateful. I just wanted to share my recent upcycling projects which God has truly Bless me by His Grace and Mercy giving me the strength, courage, and materials to have it sewn and completed.

I was Blessed by one of my WordPress friends, and followers to have given me lots of beautiful fabric scraps. I decided to use some as well as others from my collections with these projects.

From an old pair of Jeans Pants I cut off the upper, and added a quilt like style to form this.

Being that I like my clothes to be lined a lining was added.

Next Project: From an old Jean Jacket I cut off the sleeves, button closure flap, collar, and the waist flap of the jacket. Here is the FRONT:

Here is the BACK:

Next Project: A reversible bag.
The button closure from the jacket is being use here as closure for the bag. The flap from around the waist is being use as a handheld strap.

    • Thanks Melissa! I didn’t put a time on it because I’m always multitasking. It took more than a week because I didn’t sew every day for long hours. Thanks for uplifting me with your comment, and for stopping by. Be Blessed, Mtetar

  10. Those are amazing projects! Great job! I have a purse that I made out of a jean skirt several years ago. I always get comments on it and I still use it. Very durable….and washable! That bag is great and it’s reversible! Bonus! Keep sewing….please!

  11. ohmygoodness! I love that bag! And the jacket too – and the skirt. But you know me, I am especially drawn to the bag. How creative!!

    • Thank you!!! How nice to have you visit, and comment. The both are very much appreciative and of inspiration. I also like bags but still studying the DIY of inserting a zipper. You’re very creative yourself, and plus you’re great with using a pattern. I hope I can easily find the older/vintage patterns with the lines for tracing seams and other markings. They were made by Simplicity, and McCalls. Be Blessed, Mtetar
