* dotty bag rescue

Posted on August 20th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

The bag I got from Little Purl of the Orient for backtack II got ripped. I felt really bad since is was such nice materials and so well constructed, so I decided to try to save it. I was able to salvage two nice rectangular pieces (with interior pockets intact!) and resewed them together into this cool geometric bag. There’s tight zigzag stitch around the handle and the top edge, which really adds some nice extra structure. I’m very happy with it. It’s like a whole new bag!
