Description

Hello Dears!

I’d like to share my newest and most favorite (so far) bag that I made from a jacket which I found in the thrift store. I also made a tutorial, in case you want to make this bag (it’s not very hard to make – trust me :)

Blogged on my blog

The TUTORIAL is here, on my blog
(please excuse me for not uploading it directly to Burdastyle, but it would have taken too long :)

    Your refashion leatherbag looks great too! :D And the tutorial is great! I might do that when I find another ugly leatherjacket! :)

      Thank you for a nice comment. Even though I’m very flattered, I don’t think it’s talent – it’s more of an effort :)
      My sewing machine is probably the most simple (and cheapest) bernina: bernina bernette E55 (3,5 years old)

    Wow, that really does look suede-y. ;D Great choice for a bag! (Maybe even better for a bag than a jacket? ;) Since I’m not a fan of polyester jackets, myself…)

      Oh, and I should have said: Love that zipper detail! (Apparently I like to comment about zippers lately…) Very, very cool!

      Thank you :) Not only does it look suede, but it feels like it, too. My friend and I had a little discussion until we figured what kind of material it was :D

      So there IS such a thing as a useful polyester fabric! ;)

      BTW — congrats on having your bag featured on CraftGawker. ;D

    I absolutely love your bag, beautifully sewn!!!

    alcantara is actually used in car seats on high end automobiles too.

      Thank you :) Alcantara was amazing material to work with, but unfortunately I haven’t seen any in fabric stores…

    Like the square shape: really a great idea. Is it suede or fabric?

      Thank you :) The tag on the jacket said it is a fabric called alcantara (something from polyester), but I personally never heard of this fabric before, so I had to google it :D
