Up-Cycled Drawstring Bags

Creating from side-of-the-road
castoffs isn't all I do...

I sew... 
At one point in my life I even made 
my own wedding gown...
but that's another story... 

For this project I up-cycled a pair of 
white capri pants with great texture...
By cutting on the dotted 
lines I created 4 bags.

I sewed a couple of seams and ran natural colored, vintage seam binding through the hem.

I gave each bag a French stamp using
StazOn Ink...

and the re-cycled bags can be used for 
shoe bags, travel, 
lingerie, or cosmetics.

A great up-cycled project 
with little or no cost.

  1. Gorgeous! Capris never looked so good!


  2. Very cute, Susan! Great repurposing project.

  3. I needed drawstring bags for my kids for gym. You should see the pathetic things I made all those years ago.
