EcoVest Converts to a Bag – Free Photo Collage and Guide – Sewing Inspiration?!

+ How to install a zipper without using a zipper foot

vest to bag photo collage and guide - Renueva tu Ropa en el Nuevo Año - Transforma un chaleco en una bolsa o viceversa

by Laura Termini of Chicanol


This project from Laura Termini of Chicanol is one of those that inspires me because it’s very cool, it’s easy sewing, and it’s extremely enviro GREEN and exceptionally economical. If you want to learn how to sew zippers, or want to upcycle a vest you have but perhaps it ended up in the dryer too long… (remember that’s called felting ;) ), this is the perfect recycle and sewing project. It’s an easy sew, and you will end up with a unique and large-capacity custom bag. Music to my ears!

Unfortunately there is not a sewing tutorial of PDF pattern for this bag. I really hope someone writes or films one so that I can include it within this post. You can see more from Laura Termini of Chicanol here!
