Trousers to Tote


I made this bag using trousers, a skirt, and some curtain fabric. 

Unsure what the actual definition of a tote bag was, I looked it up, It's 'a large open bag with 2 handles' apparently, so this bag definitely fits that description.

The pieces were all interfaced before sewing up, to keep the shape more rigid.




The lining used to be a skirt and was slippery and difficult to work with. The last time I used this former skirt fabric, it got the better of me, so this time I used hairspray during the cutting and sewing to keep it under my control.


This is going to be my new work bag.
