Autumn colours bag

Added Aug 16, 2012

Somewhere, Austria






Some time ago I made three bags within a few weeks. I gave them names according to the fabric.
I took some inspiration from the Anna Boho Bag as I do not have the pattern.
Especially the two side pockets are worth the (bit) extra work.

Searching high and low for affordable wooden rings to put the strap in, I had nearly given up.
Then one day I was at the 2nd hand furniture shop and came across a little basket with at least 20 wooden rings…in my size!….in my colour!…and the man on the counter let me have them for free, yay!

On the bottom of the bag I put in a sturdy cardboard which I covered in light cotton – so I can find my keys, mobile phone etc. easily. I was very proud when this idea hit me ;))

Material Notes

cotton, 2 wooden rings, elastic-band, selfmade tassel (bag 3)




Garment Type
