With eThreads rePurpose, you can take your old favorite t-shirt, dress, blanket, etc… and turn it into your favorite new bag! We’ve seen a lot of fun materials recycled into new bags, but Heather’s materials were really interesting. She sent us about a dozen cut outs to see what we could do. They were beautiful pieces, but many were already cut into small pieces, which makes it a bit difficult to rePurpose. It was a fun project though because it forced us to get really creative on how to use the pieces! We settled on a Medium Pouch made with one piece, a Zippy Purse made with 2 pieces, and a larger Straight Day Clutch made with one piece rotated and a lot of black cotton. Heather chose all the zipper and lining colors. The results were really unique and awesome:
“I received the bags a week or 2 ago and have been meaning to tell you ever since how cool they are! In fact, they’re sorta *too* cool since my girlfriend took one look at them and asked, “which one is mine?” Sigh … At least you and I know who the mastermind here is. ;) Thanks for making it happen!”
The piece on the right became the bottom half of a Square Day Clutch. The rest of the bag is made with black cotton, including the handle. Heather chose a red lining and black zipper:
