So, I began with a pair of grey jeans. Like an idiot, I forgot to photograph them before I cut them, but you get the gist! I'd just like to point out that these photos do not flow... but I thought I'd put them in anyway!
Next, you want to make a solution of bleach and water in equal parts. I used 300ml of house hold bleach, and 300ml of water, in a bucket. Then dunk away bebe! The longer you leave the bleach on the material the lighter it will go, but the mixture I used was quite strong so it was literally just in and out! By the way, make sure you are either doing this outside, or put some plastic bags down so you don't get bleach every where! But you knew that right ?!
Then let it dry,....... TADAAAAAAAAAA this is mine :)
Next I pinned the bag front to front so it was effectively 'inside-out'.
Again, forgot to take photos here! I got too carried away with it all! But basically what I did was sew them together with the sewing machine, about 1.5 cm away from the edges, and turned it inside out! I also made some lining for the bag, although I can't really explain to you how I did that as it was my first time and pretty much a fluke!
I then added some bad ass studs which I got off ebay for £1.30, and made and stitched on the handles with some leftover denim, and there you go.
I like to think it is quite Allsaints-esque, just a bit grungy and well....slightly emo. Just putting it out there. But, i'm thinking with a really feminine floral dress, and some ballet pumps, this could work! It's a bit 'edgy' and costed me no more than £1.30 don'tchaknow.
Do you like-a my bag-a?
Hope you have enjoyed this post...sorry it was a bit higeldy-pigeldy and hard to follow. I will get better, promise!
Have a lovely day! x
