Remember my beauteous boho boots?
Check out what I created from the chopped off boot tops:
A fabulous beatnik bag!
Here’s what I did:
I snagged the chopped boot tops & a coordinating necktie.
sliced off that rather annoying fringe
placed one on top of the other & trimmed off the uneven edges
grabbed one boot top & centered the necktie around the edges right sides facing
and stitched it on
twisting the tie around the edges for perfect corners
then zigzagged the edges for extra strength
and repeated the process with the remaining boot top on the other side of the tie
then flipped the bag right side out & stitched the ends of the tie together to complete the fancy new strap
and added a quick button closure to finish off my groovy new bag!
