{create} Up-cycling Thai Silk Shirts

When my Sister came back from living in Thailand, she bought us all back some gorgeous pieces of Thai silk clothing.

Small Boy and Husband both received shirts…

Husband never wore his (that I can recall) and Small Boy has long since out-grown his.

I loved it when Small Boy wore his brown Thai silk.  It was a favourite shirt of his, so he wore it often.  And I couldn’t bear parting with it.

I had been eyeing some of Dannielle – of with 2ns – phone cases, when I hit on the idea of getting the shirts made in to bags.

I contacted Dannielle, and after a couple of emails back and forth to discuss designs, I sent off the shirts!

And these are what I got back!!

I love that I now carry my Small Boys shirt with me every day… And I’m just waiting for the right opportunity to use Husband’s shirt-bag.

Thanks so much Dannielle!  It was an absolute pleasure to work with you, and I love my new bags!!
