Thee Latest Upcycled Bags | Before and After Upcycled Sari Clutches and Crossbody Bag

Lately I came across nice Indian sari (or saree) at the thrift store that resulted in three interestingly different bags.

The embroidery is lovely and although some of the beading was falling apart I managed to save what was still intact. Most of the dress though, the burgundy part, was very stained throughout. I washed it but it did nothing to remedy those areas. I could see why it ended up donated and on sale. In the end I made two zippered foldover clutches and a messenger bag, all from this dress along with adding some other upcycled materials like denim and faux leather.

All bags are available in my Etsy shop. Check them out ❤
