recycled craft project

Out of the scrap pile, emerged this:

It was made from an old pair of blue jeans, wool scraps, some fabric from the basement, and beads from the stash.

It’s the messenger bag from Cindy Taylor Oates. If you look at the pattern, I made the bag with all of the dots across the flap. I just made up my own design for the flap.

Maybe it’s WAY too ambitious to think that high risk girls could put together bags and design the flaps the way they desire.

So here we are with the finished project. I invited some friends over and let them make bags out of our “scraps”. They still need to finish their bags before I show them off for you.
