eThreads rePurpose Testimonial: Heather H.

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!”

 

 

These two pieces became the Zippy Purse: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the inside of the Zippy Purse, Heather chose a dark purple nylon lining and the pocket is lined in leftover t-shirt material:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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:
