Well here's a fun example of upcycling a t-shirt into a handbag:
I saw this t-shirt while thrift shopping a while ago and instantly thought of my blogging friend Krista (her love of Cash is inked right into her arm). I wanted to make a bag for her since I had won her sweet tote bag from a giveaway.
Since Krista is a funky mix of girly and tom-boy grit... I paired a retro floral liner with leopard print straps. You can 'walk the line' over to her blog and see how sweet it looks on her here!
In other thrifting news... here's a retro brown suitcase I scored recently. It was in mint condition and a perfect addition to my turquoise Globetrotter (my mom owned as a child).
These suitcases are a great way to stash and display my creations at craft shows (and I'm gearing up for a Christmas craft show currently... stay tuned).
So those are a couple of my fun thrift store finds lately... how about you?
Don't you just love finding a sweet score?
