A Bag Refashion

One evening. once I had finished my current sewing project. I looked around my sewing room, trying to figure out what to work on next. I had some big projects to work on, but none of those appealed to me at that moment. I wanted something small and quick. My eyes fell on this computer bag.

My aunt gave it to me several years ago for Christmas, a nice bag, but as I already had a computer bag (with a shoulder strap!) I've never used this one. That night I decided it needed a purpose.

My little sister has some stuff she must carry with her where ever she goes. To hold this stuff she needs a small purse-type bag with lots of pockets so nothing gets lost. The idea hit me, I could refashion this bag for my sister!

I cut it down in size, added some pockets, and did a little re-decorating to the outside of the bag. It came together just as I'd hoped!

My sister now has a bag with pockets for all of her stuff, and I no longer feel bad for not using this bag. I call that a successful refashion! Check out the post on my blog for the entire step-by-step process. (and if you go back a couple posts while you're there you can see pictures of all my new baby goats, things have been crazy around here!)

Way to find reuse for an unused gift! I'm sure your sister will love it :)
