ThreadBanger pays homage to the movie "Fame" by showing us how to make the perfect "80's-tastic" duffel bag out of old umbrellas. With this thrifty idea, you will need a few umbrellas (broken is fine), scissors, a square pattern, a sewing machine, a zipper, and anything handy that will work as a strap. Use your new custom duffel bag to carry all your leotards or dance shoes in, or make a statement on your way to the video store to rent "FAME!"
