Mama's got a brand new bag, yup I'll be Brown bagging it in style! or at least I would be if this wasn't a gift for a too hip Teen across the border.
Have been loving the Paper bag Leather clutches from Jil Sander recently and I just happened to have this brown paper bag looking Leather in my oh too enormous stash so I got busy. I added some extra stitching to what would usually be fold lines on a paper bag, to give the bag more structure, it worked a treat and gave it enough form to stand on its own.
All folded ready for another day.
This was a quick easy sew even using Leather, a few missed stitches but overall nothing too disastrous. The whole bag takes a simple rectangle and it could easily be made by repurposing an old Leather skirt, got a pair of Trousers in your refashion pile? even better.
I have a Tutorial in the works for this, cruising my beloved Pinterest for Tutorials the only ones I could find were using glue and were a bit too basic for what I wanted so look forward to that my lovelies.
Sssspppppeaking of refashions, remember once upon a time I used to refashion clothing? like a lot? you didn't? check out my Hand Me Down Horror series HERE and just keep on scrolling.
Wellll I'm back on it, I have a huge pile to refashion and a year on from my gorgeous girl being born I seriously need clothes without suspicious shoulder dribble stains, so I'm back on the sewing machine and getting snippy with it.
Watch this space ;)
