Good to Go

I’ve been saving some old garments that I cannot bear to part with.  One of those items being my favourite ‘FatFace’ Jeans.  I adored these, but sadly no longer fitted.  I’ve been hanging on to them and glad I did.  I went for the chop on Sunday, and they have been turned into this fabulous ‘Good-to-Go’ Messenger.  Pattern courtesy of my favourite pattern designer Lisa at Two Pretty Poppets

It is surprising how much fabric you have to play with out of a pair of old jeans.  I used some of my retro caravan fabric for the flap and a plain blue lining.  As this bag is for me, I thought I would keep in plain, just in case hubby ends up carrying it – it could be unisex.  I also kept the label from the back of the jeans and added as a feature to the side of the bag.
