Reconstructed Old Pants and Shirts

I typed this entry a while ago, before there was an electricity trip-off. T-T I lazy to type the whole thing again. T-T So, I just let the pictures do the talking.

Pair of soft cotton knitted stretchable pants and a t-shirt. The pants more than 8 years old and shirt more than 5 years old. I have a LOT of clothes I don't wear anymore. I'm taking a cue from Japanese craft magazines to make bags from cotton materials. But they normally use linen.






The lace and velvety red fabric tape are for covering the unsightly stitches. :P I got the fabric tape from a swap. :)

And I made another bag from a sleeveless knitted top from my mum's teenage years. Her size sadly does not fit me.... T-T Red pom-poms are part of a swap package too. :)

OH my Goodness!
I LOVE that you had the pictures of the original items and what you transformed them in to.
Nice touch.

Mikiye - Thanks! The Japanese are very inspirational. :)

Lynn Xuan - Haha... :P Amazed in a shocked way? My mum almost clobbered me because I cut through clothes that're still in good condition. :P But then, I showed her my towering piles of not-worn-anymore clothes. She has since passed me more unworn clothing. T-T
