It’s always fun to find just the right denim skirt to turn into a bag. Not too wide at the top, long enough to cut a strap from the bottom, no gathers and plenty of pockets to make it interesting. The bonus was costing 80 cents at the op shop!raspberries-denim-bag-from-skirt-005

The key to making a good bag is to find the right skirt to start with. I like a flared skirt with a front zip and pockets. If it’s long enough, you can use the hem you cut off to make a shoulder strap. It looks best if you line it and add a large dome to close the top. I’ve embellished this one with applique flowers but you can leave it plain if you prefer.
