This is a replica of a very expensive bag I saw in a store in Santa Monica. Mine is made with two layers of contrasting fabric cut to approx 110cms x 90cms, between these two layers is iron-on interfacing and a large piece of wadding in the centre to give the bag substance. I sewed all these layers together and then tied the corners very tightly through large rings. There is a small pocket inside for holding a mobile phone. The strap is also padded for comfort. It closes with a magnetic clip. I’ve made at least 50 of these bags and they are all different fabric combinations.
Floral Cotton on outside with contrasting cotton on inside. I have also made some with shiny polyster fabric. Large brass or silver rings to tie the fabric through and to hold the strap in place.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
