For the upcoming Octoberfest in Munich, I sewed this saddlebag.
I’ll wear a Dirndl dress with red roses on black fabric, and I only knew my bag should be grey with red decoration. I had no idea about the bag’s pattern but I got inspired by the saddlebag of a popular French Coutoure label. It reminds of a riding saddle. By viewing some pictures online, I finally created my own pattern that is easy to sew.
I took grey jeans fabric for the corpus and tweed for “seat” and cinches. Decoration is made of ruffle ribbon, a brooch and a pin, iron-on patches (deer heard is applicated by myself, made of the lining fabric), feathers and a keychain with pretzel, Bavarian sausage and beer mug instead of stirrups.The grips are carabiners.
The bag is lined with leo-satin-print, I found this breach of style funny.
I used iron-on volume fleece to get the bag stable.
Jeans, tweed, volume fleece, leather, 2 carabiners and rings, magnetic catch, ruffle ribbon, keychain, lining
