Upcycled Sweatshirt Tote Bag

So hubby has this really cute sweatshirt that he didnt want anymore, but it's not torn or anything, so i decided to upcycle it into a tote bag!

Here is the finished product

here is the sweatshirt, Domo Kun

After cutting it at the sleeves and the neck, i started with the lining, sewing the front big pocket onto the lining

then sewing the lining, front and back sweatshirt pieces together

haha he is just too cute

the straps are made from the sleeves. i cut the sleeves, length wise, in half, then sewed the two pieces at the cut, then made it into a strap

straps are sewn onto the bag! YAY done!

Upcycled Denim Belts Organizer

I used a whole pair of jeans for this project.  I simple sewed lines across both legs to make pockets, and used the denim yellowish thread to make the pockets look prettier. 

This is great for belts, ties, or socks
