I started with a worn out and torn leather jacket and this oh so cute apron. I almost wanted to keep the apron, but since I never wear the numerous ones that I already own I decided that this was a better idea.
I constructed a pattern and made quick work of cutting the pieces to fit.
I decided to use the pattern fabric behind the draw string to not wear on the leather and to add a pop of color to the top of the bag.
Body of the bag completed! From there I decided to add the special touches!
I decided to line it with a bright red and use the apron ties on the cross body strap. I also decided to add tassels on the draw strings for the top of the bag!
Completed! I am super happy with this bag and am thinking of making an embellished jacket next! Till next time stay creative and happy refashioning!
