My dear friend and boss Waylon asked me to make him a new bathing suit, easy enough but there was a catch, he wanted it made out of a Chinatown shopping bag.
Not one to turn down a challenge, I accepted.
So today he brought me a shopping bag and an old bathing suit he doesn't wear anymore to use for its lining.
A couple hours later I went from this... One China Town Shopping/Laundry Bag
To This... A fully lined, elastic waist-banded bathing suit.
I left the straps across the front (just for fun), used the zipper pieces as trim on the side seams and added the binding to the leg hems.
Not bad if I do say so myself.
