Upcycled US Mail Bag Into Shoulder Bag

This is my kind of bag! The bag’s exterior is made from a gray upcycled domestic US mail bag I found at an antique mall on the drive home from Kansas City to St. Louis; paired with made in the USA home décor fabric from Premier Prints Inc. The bag’s interior features a divided flat pocket and 7-inch zipper pocket, perfect for a phone, keys, and walking around money. The adjustable strap is made from an upcycled man’s belt. A magnetic snap fastens the bag at the top to keep everything securely inside.


  • Height – 14 inches
  • Width – 16.5 inches
  • Depth – 4 inches
  • 1.75 inch strap — adjusts from 31 inches to 35 inches in length.

How cool. I live in the KC area, and would love to know where this antique mall is.
