Went to the charity shop this morning and bought some rather large (UK size 20) black jeans. Hopefully the black will help the colours sing and not sure why I went large. Didn't mean to - went into the shop with every intension of a 10 / 12 size pair but came out with these large. Going with the flow and large it is. Think I will probably add a base too so that the bag will stand once full. Could be a 'take-this-one-with-swimming-towels-and-costumes-in' kind of a bag, or a 'mum-will-carry-the-picnic-and-blanket' bag. :)
Feeling very happy about the whole thing. Lovely to be making something to keep for a change. LOL
Anyway here are the 'before' photos.
Now ALL I need to do it some sewing :) May start by using some of Nancy's wool to crochet a belt to go through the belt loops (unsurprisingly).
