Bib Overalls Reused Into Bag
Nothing like a good pair of bib overalls, right!? What do you do with them when that good pair gets to worn out to wear anymore? If it is just the knees that get worn out or get holes in them, you could always cut them off and turn them into bib overalls shorts. But what do you do with them after they no longer fit and there is no one else in the family to pass them down to? I have a cute idea for you to try! You can make them into a super cute bag/purse!
You can make it from any size overalls, however for a bag that you want to carry around with you, it works best with baby and toddler sizes. Believe it or not, these are actually really simple to make! You can do it by sewing if you are someone that sews or you can make it with iron on no sew adhesive tape.
1 Pair Bib Overalls (Baby or Toddler Work Best)
No Sew Adhesive Tape (Or Needle And Thread)
Lay the overalls flat on a table and cut off the bottoms just above where the legs start.
Now turn them inside out. This is where you can either sew it or use the tape. If sewing, do a stitch all the way across the the bottom to close the open end where you just cute off.
If using the no sew tape, cut a strip of tape that is the length of the bottom opening.
Place it in between the the two flaps (while having them inside out).
Hold the two sides down with one hand, and then take your heated iron and run it across the inside out side a few times. This will make the tape adhere to each side. After you are sure it is fully adhered (normally 2 – 3 minutes), turn them back right side out. Make sure both straps and buttoned.
That is it! You just made a bib overalls reused into bag.
