New in thee Shop: Upcycled Denim Canteen Circle Bags

Newest collection of upcycled denim canteen bags is all done and ready! Each is listed in the shop.

There are so many shades of denim, it's continuously inspiring. I particularly like the denim with thick orange/yellow stitching and fraying bits like these:

For the undersides or depths of the bags I like to patch them up with coordinating denim or other materials.

The backs of the bags end up being all different too. I try to make sure there's at least one functioning pocket.

I also try to give each zipper a longer zipper pull to make it easier since it is a curve. I usually reuse necklace chains and charms.

New in thee shop: Upcycled Denim and Leather Basketweave Patchwork Purse

This big tote bag was made with leftover scraps of different materials. Upcycled denim, of course, a dark red leather from a jacket and thrifted cotton fabric and clothing. I went for a basketweave type of design for the patchwork since a lot of the remnants were small.

There was still some red leather leftover so I made a matching tassel to go with the bag.

There are two pockets inside and a zippered pocket on the outer back. There is also a magnetic snap to keep the bag shut. This is a very spacious bag and quite the statement piece with all its colors.

You check out the bag in the shop, here.
