My very first bag

Added Oct 21, 2010

Novi Sad, Serbia






I have used the pattern of “fringe inspired bag”, change a bit, I used the leather of my old skirt, instead of two handles and I have put a belt, I bought a rivets because I was not not suitable to put embroidery on leather… so…this is my first project… bag is not hard, I did not put any element inside( eexcept a small pocket), she is soft and more like a sack, yet stylish bag… Let me know if you like … I hope you understand this was mainly Google’s translator… :-)

Material Notes

Leather, zipper, metall rings, rivets.




Garment Type

      Thank you, :) Yes it was very difficult, I had a lot to do manually, and I broke about a dozen pins : ))but I’m not complaining, really good looking, I sewed on my electric machine, Several times I wanted to open an old Singer machine from my grandmother to finish on it, I did’n only because no one uses it for years…and sew a little oblique, diagonal… :)
