Hoping everyone is enjoying the holiday season so far! As usual it is a busy time for us with a lot of visiting and parties. I guess you can't complain about that!
I have a quick project to share. I found this interesting store bought bag. What was interesting about this purse is it had a removable middle divider that when detached was a complete separate crossbody style bag.
Now, I loved the main bag but wasn't thrilled with the second inside purse. It was a laminated fabric I didn't like and a bit bulky when it was attached as a divider since it had a flat bottom. So of course I think to myself, I can remake it.. and I did.. I wanted to reuse parts of the store bought bag so I deconstructed it with my trusted seam ripper.
Here's a pic of the original interior bag. It has a zipper top that I had already started to open up.
My main goal was to save the straps. To do this I had to seperate the lining and the outside of the bag. I opened up the stitches across the zipper.
