A little while ago I wanted to make something unique for my youngest nephew. But what to make him when I didn’t have too much material around the home? And then I stumbled upon some ideas on Pinterest.
I’ll repurpose a pair of mens work pants into a Day Care Sheet Bag!
The pants were perfect for the task…a sturdy version of cargo pants, but what to do about a little hole right in the middle of my new bag? Easy solution, embroider a patch to cover it!
I was stumped for a bit when it came to working out handles…that was until my Brother-In-Law kindly donated some decorative straps off a pair of his clubbing pants. He was forever losing the straps, or forgetting where he’d left them, so was more than happy to contribute a little something to a fun, family project.
So the bag was coming together, with removable handles that I placed to appear like braces holding up pants…and could be configured to best suit Mummy and Daddy…personal patch to cover up a teeny, tiny hole as well as give the bag an ID and fully lined (including drawstring) to offer a little bit more protection. I am rather pleased with how it all turned out, considering I had no clue when I started how to go about it all.
If I make another one I’ll be sure to take photos along the way, so I can do up a proper tutorial.
And you never know, with a Great Nephew on the way, anything is possible.
