A bag fit for Mr. and Mrs. Newton





When my sister-in-law, Cristina, gave me a pair of my nephews overalls, saying I could maybe use the denim for something, I thought: what am I going to do with so little denim??? A few days later I was playing around with them and it hit me! A bag! So I cut off the legs and the straps, then I added a gusset on the bottom and different straps. Voila!!:) The plaid fabric is a button down shirt. I love how all the pockets on the outside are so functional!!

    I have this ruffled skirt thats too short now, and I was thinking of turning it into an oversized ruffled clutch bag..
