Hey you guys!
I have done it again! I can’t help it but I soooo love doing these bags and I had this fabric I bought in Madrid some time ago… so I thought I combine them with some of my husbands old jeans. upcycling hello!! :-) I am really satisfied with the result and guess what… it won’t be the last one I do :-)
While sewing the bag, I did a tutorial along with it. So I photographed every step and wrote it down.
You can have a look and download the tutorial for free on my blog www.mirei71.ch and I would absolutely loooooove to see your creations :-)
Not much text today, since things are getting crazy here. So many projects keeping me busy at the moment. Sometimes I just don’t know where to start and I am dreaming of staying in bed all day long but after all… I’m not the type :-) I hope you like my vintage bag and would love to read your comments.
Stay sew-focused and enjoy what you do! Big hugs from my sewing atelier to yours. See you in my next post. Bye!!
