finished object #4 - plarn bag revived
I spotted this belt at an op shop earlier this year, and fell in love with it immediately. I knew I wanted to use it on a bag at some stage, either as a trim around the top, or as a strap. But no matter how many different bags I tried it on... it just didn't sit right!
But now I have found the perfect use for it. Remember my plarn bag? I was so annoyed when the loopy trim stretched. I had removed it, but been at a bit of a loss as to where to go next. Then I spotted the denim belt again... just the right length for the strap.
So I added a simple navy cotton picot trim to the plarn, attached the belt and lined it with denim from an old pair of jeans.
I love it now more than ever before. It's my everyday bag, and is so much more 'ME' now than it was before. Yay!
