I love recycling old things, I had an old vintage scarf that was too big to wear but I didn't know what to do with it.. in a moment of madness I decided to make myself a bag of sorts!

I took apart an old handbag and re used the strap for mine but if you're feeling adventurous you could try making your own from rope or chains!

Its super simple so I put together a basic tutorial so you guys could try it yourself. 

here's how I knocked mine together...

there you go, pretty simple if you're not too confident with sewing! I did mine by hand but if you've got a sewing machine it would only take minutes! 

if you wanted to get more creative you could add badges, zips or buttons!

anyway hope you like it!
