But I have a confession.
I only made a business card case from the list.
*hangs head in shame*
So I sought out new inspiration.
I added some new pins to my pinterest board and I got my craft on.

I was also in possession of a pair of outgrown jeans belonging to the Princess.
If you search on Pinterest for denim or jeans upcycling you will find pins of bags outnumbering other projects at a rate of at least 501 to 1-ish.
So I took my daughters jeans,
chopped them in half retaining the zip and hacked off a leg retaining the pockets,
turned the jeans inside out and sewed across the bottom and up the side.
I turned it the right way out again and fashioned a handle out of the leg I had cut off, attaching it at each side with several rows of stitching for strength.
By chance more than by design the handle is exactly the right length to be worn over one shoulder and also to be carried on her micro scooter.
I'm thinking a new line in upcycled jeans micro scooter accessories. Or is that too niche?
