Custom-made Bags2Bags

2 May

This past winter was a bit slow for Bags2Bags, I wasn’t working on any purses. Things changed quickly as within a tw0-week period I had requests for two custom order purses and one market bag (tote). They’ve kept me busy, which is good because I think it is fun to be able to turn plastic shopping bags into fashionable purses and totes.

My first custom-made order this spring was for this shimmery purple purse—sugar plum—which belongs to a young lady in TX. Since this purse already has an owner, I need to replicate it, as best I can with a new batch of found materials (plastic bags).

Purple plastic bags are a rarity, but I did have some remaining in my supply of plarn. Most of the bags came home with me from the shops in Belize last year.

I did have to scrounge around for enough bags to complete the purse.A local Utah store uses dark purple bags and I was able to get a few to use. So…I was able to create sugar plum 2 for a friend of a Destination Paradise YWAM student.

Now I am working on a replica of a Belize bag in white and soft greens (made while in Belize…it stayed there with its new owner).Watch for posts of this one and the market bag in the coming weeks.
