Repurposed blind

We recently had a change of display at the curtain company I work for and they were taking down some old roman blinds to replace with some new designs, not one to let things go to waste I took the old ones home, not that I had a window they would fit but I knew Id find a use for them.

You may have noticed I have a thing for bags and as its coming up the summer here in England this fabric just screemed beach bag!

So this one has one large pocket on one side, on the other side I did the same but stitched up the middle to make it 2 pockets.  I used curtain lining for the inside and made another pocket there too.

So there we go a nice light bag with plenty of room for the essentials ready for summer, and another use for fabric that was being thrown out!
