Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I've been carrying my original scrap happy purse for over a year and a half. I had washed it a few times, used it almost constantly, and admittedly, it was looking a little bit shabby. I knew it was time to retire it, but I wasn't quite ready to let go. So....last night I chopped it up, discarded the worn bits, and "recycled" the rest of the outer panels by turning it into a zip pouch.
I DID finish a quilt this week as well...but I have big plans for the photographs, so the full reveal will have to wait. (Sorry if I'm being a stinker!) We shall see if the photos turn out anything like they will in my head. Here's hoping!!!
What a great way to give new life to your patchwork!
That pouch is so cute!!!
You are thrifty in more ways than one with this finish!
Great idea to reuse it!
Love your recycling! I wonder if I could do the same with a worn-out Vera Bradley? Worth a try! Yours looks wonderful.
cute cute! Love how you repurposed your original scrappy bag. I especially love zipper pouches with flat bottoms like this.
Such a cute pouch. I need to learn how to make these!!
What a lovely scrappy pouch.
great pouch. What a fantastic idea to remake your tote into a pouch. Just perfect. Looking forward to seeing photos of your new quilt. I'm sure they will be stunning.
well, aren't you the clever one. I can see why you kept that old zipper, something like that says "use me some day". And I just finished binding a mini quilt. Wish I'd seen wednesday's post on wednesday :)
(One day soon I'll hopefully be able to post a link to a finish.)
Im very much looking forward to seeing the full reveal of that quilt as I love those colors!!
I think that zipper is fantabulous!!
I love this your colourful blog!
I love the zipper! Can't wait to see the full picture of the other one. Man, did you give new life to that donated bag of scraps!!
So kann man super Stoffreste verwerten.
I looooooove that zipper! Your scrappy pouch is so cute!
I think your new pouch is adorable. And that zipper pull caught my eye right away. I love it! Looking forward to seeing more of your sneak peek!
What a great way to repurpose a much loved and used purse. Your zip pouch turned out great!
I love the idea of upcycling and these are two great examples!
great idea! I cut my daughter's 'blankie' smaller and put a new binding at one point too b/c it was quite worn. She had a nice small one to take with wherever we went.
Great recycling job!
Recycling something made from scraps - now, that is dedication to the idea of waste not, want not!
Oh....both projects are yummy!
I think that's got to be the ultimate scrap project - a scrap to the power scrap as it were! It looks wonderful and it must be nice not to have to abandon something that you put so much work into!
Cutest bag ever!
I have done the same thing! Loved a worn out project so much, I recycled it into something new and practical. This looks great!!
It looks very good! Great idea to recycle some parts you love!
I love your little pouch, so sweet!
Love how you recycled your bag into a pouch.
Too bad I missed your "Finish Up Friday" challenge this week. I finished my FIRST full size quilt top late last night and didn't get it photographed to make the link up deadline. Oh well, I have next week and challenge myself to have it quilted, bound and the matching pillow cover finished. I enjoy your work and the chance to challenge myself to complete projects....THANKS
Your husband clearly knows nothing about zippers! That is crazy cool!
Great idea, to recycle, but I loved that purse - sorry to see it go . . . Of course I love the pouch but . . .
Bag it very cute but oh - that quilt looks nice!
woops "is" very cute!
