5. Rainbow Pull Tab Shoulderbag

Pop Top Lady made this bag by weaving reclaimed sodapop tabs together. Nylon thread in rainbow colors gives this bag its pop! You could make this project even more eco-friendly by using organic cotton thread or a yearn-worthy yarn instead of nylon, which is a petroleum product.

Do you guys have any inspiring, upcycled pieces you’ve been working on? Let’s keep the inspiration going in the comments!
