One pant leg was stitched up into a felt vest.
But pants are no longer pants with only one tunnel,
so, the other wooly leg fulfilled it’s destiny to morph into a bag.
There is prodigious beauty to sewing without a pattern. The form is loose, the stitches unstructured, the shapes flowing and bending and blending into something – whatever you choose.
Try a pant leg project of your own. Grab a pant leg and let it become what it wants to be. A bag? A purse? A skirt for a child? The top of a shoe? Mittens? A hat?
Let your imagination go wild and perfect your ability to stitch randomly, at your own free will. Start somewhere, your needle and thread will know the way…
Design as you go, be bold, be courageous! Fold, tuck, let inspiration come from odd shapes. Then cut back the wool to make a flap, this pant leg will be a travel bag.
Make the strap as wild as you allow yourself to be, just be sure it fits – the length, the depth, the style. No one will have a bag like you when you indulge in sewing without a pattern. You might not have your new creation either, when someone else decides to claim it for her own!
Happy sustainable creating!!
