I had a pair of pants that I bought a few years ago after Christmas. I do not wear these for 2 reasons; 1) It was post Christmas, I was about 10 pounds heavier than I am the other 11 months of the year, and 2) I can wear jeans to work at my current job!
I loved the fabric of these pants, so I didn't want to give these away.
After some brainstorming, I decided I wanted to make a wine bag.
Yes, that is 3 Buck Chuck - only the classiest in our house :)
I used some black felt I had left over for the liner, and some scraps of black and white fabric from a bag I made for Annie as the handle. And, since I love girlie things, the handle just had to have a bow!
Some up close...
And lastly, me trying to model the new wine bag.
Sorry for the cheesy self portrait - is this my surprised face? Who knows, I was just excited about my wine bag.
Total cost: $0! Best part - I still have a leg and a half left of the pants. What else can I make? :)
