Summery skirt to summery bag.

I purchased this skirt last week at the Salvation Army. I paid 4.99 for it. A little high in my opinion. The thrift stores around here seem to have a rather high markup. Something I have to get used to I guess.
It was a simple pencil skirt in a frighteningly small size six. A size six, I am not. Didn’t matter, I had a vision as soon as I saw her hanging there.

So pleased with how it came out. I couldn’t get a good shot of the lining, as my camera batteries died. I used a dark brown cotton to contrast with the light cream exterior. It’s a lovely combo.

Materials used for this bag:

thrifted cotton skirt
interfacing
cotton lining
cane handles
