This bag was inspired by a techique I learned recently – I call it crazy-technique. Basically you need to take leftovers of yarn, put them between water soluble stabilizer, handstitch is some places (btw, you can use water soluble thread as well) and sew togeather with a sewing maschine . Instead of yarn, I decided to use leftovers of fabrics I found in my closest fabric shop. In this case it is wool that is usually used for coats.
1. I cut the fabrics into ~ 1.5-2 cm straps
2. Put them between water soluble stabilizer in a pattern I found appropriate
3. Handstitched in some places
4. Crisscrossed everything with a sewing maschine
5. Gently hand-washed and put it on a towel to dry
6. Used the new hand-made ‘fabrics’ for the parts of the bag
Inside I put also two pockets from the same lining.
And as usual with any project, I learned some lessons as well. This time it is as follows: for soft and easy draping fabric, as it is in this case, it is advisable to put in something hard that helps the bag to keep the shape.
grey wool cloth, satin lining, water soluble fabrics.
As my hand-made ‘fabric’ was purposefully made with some holes in it, I decided to use lining that sticks out and is visible through. For grey any other colour would match starting from magenta pink ending with fluorescent green. I chose bright blue.
