A bag made from an old curtain bought in a second hand shop. I wanted to make a bag similar to the traditional full-grain leather bags, which teachers often use, – just with fabric as material – and if possible, also climate friendly.
I used 4 layers of fabric for each part of the bag, and made the bottom out of leather (to make it more resistant to dirt and water).
It´s difficult to explain how I did, but I can tell, that I sewed the 4 layer of fabric together on my machine, and sewed the pieces together by hand (very difficult and hard – won´t do that again!).
I used the measures from a bag from the label “decadent”
An old curtain, sackcloth, leather, bias binding, brodery thread.
