Upcycle a Cement Bag

Today’s tutorial is turning this cement bag :

… into a cross body bag, with many looks :

The flap can be folded either way, so the design on the sack can be maximized. It can also be used unfolded. Bag bottom is 8 cm, but you can make it bigger or smaller, it will be in the video below :

Extra notes :

  • Check to see if the color bleeds. Some does, some doesn’t. I don’t have a problem with that. I think the print will look nice as it “matures” and fades with usage.
  • After you cut the top and bottom of, you can roll the bag around to get a design that you like.

I added a sewing “cheat sheet” where it contains all the measurements. You can find it –> Here <–
