Gym bag mending

One day my daughter gave me her gym bag that had come unstitched. I have been pondering for days on what to do with it. I didn’t want to throw it away and buy a new one in the first place for daughter likes this horse patterned bag and what can be mended I do mend it if I can make it stylish and wearable afterwards.

First I zig-zag stitched together the parted pieces, then cut two stripes – just to make both edges of the bag similar – and machine sewed a binding on each side like I would do it on a quilt.
