Velvety drawstring knapsack made from old dress

We're moving all contents to a new site

If you've come here through an old bookmark, please update accordingly.

Looking forward to seeing you at the new URL 😊 😘

The bottom hem is sewn together to make the base

The top bit is hemmed up to leave openings for the drawstring

Each corner of the bottom is sewn into triangular flap to make a depth on the base

Leftover fabric (from the top bit of the dress) made into pockets on the inside of the bag.

The rest of the leftover fabric is used to make a pocket on the outside,
complete with zipper (a used one from some old clothing)

The drawstrings are taken from an old belt which buckle was broken.
The loops holding them at the bottom of the bag is made from the shoulders of the dress.

A new drawstring knapsack!
