This weeks challenge at Creative Craft Challenge is to use something Recycled on your project, our sponsors this week are Some Odd Girl and Crafty Ribbons and the prize for our top 3 is being offered by Simply Angelic Crafts. I have created this bag for my eldest daughter out of an old pair of jeans and a dress. The jeans have been cut off just below the crotch and stitch together to make the bottom of the bag. Then from the legs of the jeans cut down the seam to create the handle, now Shannon wanted a long handle so I used the seam of both legs. I used an old spotty red dress to create the lining for the bag which I have attached using wonder web. I used part of the dress to create the tie which goes through the belt loops this is just decorative.
To create this flower I have used my Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die to cut them from the jean legs and the dress, they are then tacked together and I have sewn a button which is a spare one of my work shirt to the centre.
These badges were created from some bottle caps squashed using my cuttlebug, Shannon helped me to pick some suitable images from google which we printed and cut out using a circle punch. These were then stuck into the bottle caps and covered with Anitas clear gloss. I attached some pins to the back.
This keyring was one of Shannon's old necklaces that she no longer wears I have just taken it apart and attached it to a keyring.
