How to upcycle denim, Crochet denim drawstring bag… Well, how to upcycle the pockets at least!
This pattern is one of my oldest designs. As many of us I keep lots of my old jeans, I really just like denim fabric, so I love to keep them around until the creative fairy comes out with a good idea!
One of the features I am particularly fond of is the pockets on this pair. The brown thread is just so lovely. I decided to run with it and emulate the same design aesthetic with the bag’s strap and the closure
I used a lovely cotton merino wool from Drops Design for the bag and strap. I think this yarn is so close to the denim colour that makes the bag a very comprehensive design.
This pattern is part of a collaboration with malikoo, they have never paid me for any for my work, nor have they paid any royalties to me as stated in the contract, I have contacted them in many occasions and I have never heard from them so I therefore declare the contract void with them and retrieve my right to sell my intellectual property.
