Hey everyone! Here’s a funny story about the buying habits in my house. Many of you know may recognize the Lululemon brand with the signature logo. My teenage boys discovered the clearance rack and now THEY spend THEIR tennis coaching money on Lululemon swag. Over the holidays we accumulated a few of their heavy, waxy textured bags. They were too durable to toss into the trash. I found a fun idea to up-cycle Lululemon bags.
Read below for my tip to buy Lululemon and not break the budget. Seriously… $76 for a bralette? No one is checking out my hmm…. bralette.
An upcycle project is the easiest way to spread (justify) the cost of fancy workout gear. The Lululemon bags are durable making the options to up-cycle possible and practical. For this up-cycle project, the brown, waxy finish made this bag an ideal plant container. It could withstand water and dirt.
But the brown bag was a little bland so I used leftover fabric and wrapped it around the bag. I had participated in a Spring Blogger Challenge and came up with this idea. I lost that post when this happened a few weeks ago. #lookforward #perspective.
The supplies included Mod Podge, scissors, and fabric.
These paper binder clips worked great to secure the fabric to Lululemon bag.
I added Mod Podge to the fabric to “toughen” it up and protect it from the water.
I loved the finished upcycled Lululemon bag. Up-cycle projects are a great way to flex our creativity to give everyday items a second life. I love it!
