|Lilly Lang with her 'eco' bag.|
Many denim items have embroidery or a bit of bling on them which make great features for the bags. I also like to incorporate working pockets and use contrasting materials for the linings. Waist bands can make good handles and I generally use magnetic catches to fasten the top openings. I try and inspire others to make their own bags and someone who has done just that is Lilly Lang, aged 12, who made one for a school project. She says "it is fun to create something which fits the project title of 'eco' bag."
