I decided to take some old pants and upcycle them into a bag when I saw the upcycle challenge on Made it on Monday. My favorite pair of white capri pants had been stained with balsamic vinegar so I figured this would give them a new life that would bring them pride. I didn't want the bag to be plain white so I headed to the local thrift shop and found a pair of red pants to add to the mix. (I figure I was doing everyone a favor by buying these pants and making them a bag. No one needed to be wearing them!)
And here's the bag:
