This whole thing started with a lecture about putting the right shorts on the right ironing pile. Apparently, I got it wrong - again! Having told me off, Daniel slinks off to the next room to put on the offending shorts, only to find the zip had broken, it was like adding insult to injury!
I wasn't going to let an opportunity like this go to waste, so although unplanned, and nowhere on that long list, the shorts were very soon being cut up. This is the first of three items I manage to get from them.
When I made this, I had in mind a toiletry or wash bag for men/teenage boys, but this design is so versatile. A friend and I were discussing different uses for it the other day, including a sewing bag, or gardening bag. As you can imagine, the cogs are turning so there will be variations of this coming some time in the future.
