Upcycled Dickies Shirt Boot/Shoe Bags

It's that time of year again to make gifts for my dear friend's birthday! I have already made her quite a few items for her previous birthdays and special occasions, so I was really stuck on deciding what to make her this year.  After a few days of thinking and researching online.  I decided to make her a few bags for her boots for when she travels! (she has MANY) 

Let's see how they turned out

Let's see how I made them

First, the materials

I used three Dickies Shirts from my husband's work that he doesn't ever wear, cut out the backs of the shirts.  Size Large is enough for one bag!

Here you will have big pieces of fabric after cutting the shirt from pocket to pocket 

I then embroidered on them

Next, sew the bags right sides together at the sides and bottom

Box Corner all of them

 Then prepare all linings the same way

Sew the zipper on to the bags

Then, there you go, easy boot bags are done!

I prefer Dickies shirts because they are easy to wash and will not change shape and sturdy!

Denim would also be a great choice of fabric!
