Description

My sister-in-law bought me a pair of red shoes. So I needed a bag, a red bag for my red shoes.
I had this red and orange fabric from IKEA, but I didn’t like the print that much. I loved instead the tulips and I have started cutting out the tulips from the fabric. I had another simple red fabric also from IKEA and started playing with the fabric like playing with a puzzle.
Look what it turned out. The original fabric from which I have cut the tulips I have used for the inside of the bag.
The hand bags are rigid because I have used a wire inside the fabric.

    Extremely clever use of the different fabrics. Love it! Especially like that it’s rigid. I don’t like bags that collapse when you set them down. Great job!

    Very nice! I especially love buttons — the way you integrated the center functional button and the two side decorative ones.
