Recycled Overalls Bag

Give those children’s overalls a second life and recycle them into a cool bag. Start a new trend!

Supplies

Child's overalls
Sewing Machine
Scissors

Instructions

For this project you will need a pair of old children's overalls from a thrift store or your younger bother or sister. The larger the overalls the bigger your bag will be.


If your overalls has any pockets on the front it will make a great little mobile pocket on the outside of your bag.

Start by cutting the leg's off, making sure to cut above the crutch or you will end up with a tuft.

Turn the bag inside out and using an overlocker or a sewing machine sew across the bottom to close it up. Make sure you do 2 zig zag stitches on a sewing machine to strengthen it.

Trim off any threads and turn the right way out.
