80's inspired tote

By PaisleyJade - Monday, April 20, 2009

More recycling of jeans has been going on in my home... this time with an 80's flavour!

Master 9, Mandrake and I have been fighting over who is going to have this one. I think I will have it... Master 9 doesn't actually know it was his old pair of jeans that I refashioned!

I nearly tore out my hair making it though... two broken sewing machine needles later. It's been one of those days.

Who would have thought that 80's fashion would be back in again... they are even selling 'kung fu shoes' in our local shoe shop. I used to wear those to Intermediate school!

I'm feeling a bit old right now. Is there anyone else who used to wear kung fu shoes, legwarmers or skinny jeans?
