green bug bags

Featuring some of the repurposed fabulousness by Heather from green bug bags this week. Love the story behind the name green bug bags too.

Heather says:

One of my first loves was a 67 VW beetle. I saw an ad for the car in a local coffee shop and soon it became my green bug. For the next 15 years, it took me everywhere and became part of my identity. I was the girl with the green bug.

Now, my green bug has inevitably become a "less practical" car to drive. Although it might not take me everywhere anymore, I decided to take it with me on a different journey. I created a business that combines my love of art, thrifting, and creativity, and I named it green bug bags. Hope you will be along for the ride!

Heather uses vintage and preloved fabrics to create her bags. All the bags you see in this post have been created using vintage fabrics. The first and fourth bags you see were created using vintage tablecloths.
