Project Restyle #5

So I am a slacker.  Whatevs.  I wish I could do a project a week, but...it ain't gonna happen.  Unless ofcourse I were to tie up the monsters, and frankly, even I did, the little boogers would escape.  Anywho, this is my 5th attempt at Project Restyle.  I do like the motivation it gives me to get crafting.  It's like my coach back in the day 86 the bullhorn and the yelling.

Before: thrifted dress
 After: cross body carry-all/shopper  for grocery shopping, days at the park or the pool, that I can get wet and dirty and throw in the wash. 
 It is ginormous.
 It has a giant cross body strap and two small handles for carrying.
 The bottom, some sweet bow heavy polyester vintage fabric.
I lined the inside with more scraps and put in a ton of pockets with the intention of storing yarn...and notebooks, when not being used to store toys and sand.  

check out the "i like to party" link to see where I linked up.  Holla!
