Creative Customers: Doug's Upcycled Bags

Around here, we love folks who get creative with old stuff -- giving new life to old materials.  We recently had a visit from creative customer Doug, who makes bags and other things using a combination of materials... including Pendleton fabric and scraps.  He rattled off a list of thrift store finds that have been made into useful new things:  car upholstery, pillowcases, prom dresses, and more!


Pendleton fabric plus an old seat belt makes a fantastic messenger-style bag!


Close-up on the seat belt buckle because it's so snazzy.


A "gravity bag" where the one handle loops through the other and gravity holds the bag closed.
