A Denim bag and A T-shirt Flower

Another sewing project, another project from 'jeans' legs cut-offs' ...... a simple rectangle bag to dump your stuff in and carry along.....reversible carry-all - brushed denim on the outside, striped cotton fabric on the inside, t-shirt fabric flower and few leaves sewn on as embellishments - done!!!!
One patchwork flower....
The flower was made like so - 
Cut up the bottom of an old t-shirt into 1 1/2" strips, then start rolling a strip into a round while twisting the strip into a spiral side-by-side. Tuck the end in under and tack with a few stitches to hold in place. Sew onto the bag with a needle and thread.
The flower was sewn on to the denim before the lining was attached.
The leaves were from another old t-shirt - just cut into leaf shapes (double layer of fabric), pinned to the fabric right on to the bag and sewn over, 1-2 mm in from the edge, with a contrast colour. I ran one or two seams down the middle to imitate a vein. Done!
If the flower patch seems a little off-centre that is because it is - it was placed there to cover a grass stain :) .....
Love this bag....
Ciao!!
