I’m sure most of us ladies have a dress that we don’t wear, I have a few!
Sometimes I donate them. Other times I turn them into something else, because why say goodbye when you can say hello?
Here’s some tunes for your scroll 🎶
This old, striped gem, from Forever21, is now my purse. It matches my daughter’s, well, sort of! They are both upcycled fringe shoulder bags!
Check her’s out here 🙂
Start by cutting the bottom of your dress into strips
Tie the top and bottom strips together tightly
Check the inside to make sure there’s no holes, re-tie the strips tighter if there is
The bottom is done, for now
Cut the top down the center until just before you reach the drawstring
Cut those halves into thirds and braid each of them into straps
End with the longest strand in the middle and tie the ends into a bow
Knot the straps to hide any extra fabric and tie them together on each side to make two straps
Lastly, cut the bottom strips into thinner fringe and your upcycled bohemian bag is done!
