Christmas break is officially over, so it’s back to work for me! Over the break I started several projects, including two bags. One turned out really well, and the other is more eh.
First up is my swanky new purse. The midnight blue and black graphic flower combo gives this a bit of an Asian feel to me. It’s prefect for winter.
To make this, I used one of those tyvek feeling reusable bags. I liked the length and width of the bag, so I just used scissors to cut the top down a bit and give it some shape. Next, I covered the entire bag in strips of duct tape. I used my rivet setter to add rivets to the top and sewed on my ribbon handles.
Finally, I added a ribbon strung through a vintage belt buckle to the middle of the bag. Easy Peasy!
I have a really, super fun project to show you tomorrow. It is one of my favorite things I’ve ever made so I’m a little too excited about it!
Oooh, just for fun, do you sew? If so, what was the first project you attempted? How long did it take you to feel really comfortable using your machine?
p.s. I'm linking this to DIY Day in case any other grown women think the idea of a duct tape bag is awesome!
