Round Miracle bag (using idea of bathina bag handles)

Added Jun 11, 2009

St. Petersburg, ...






Bright red round bag with appliqué from leather shards.
I called it ‘Round Miracle’, cause it works miracles! Check it out! ;-)

Material Notes

- Red (a bit with magenda tint) thick cotton fabric for facing;

- Yellow water-proof fabric with roses pattern (actually this is a tablecloth,);

- Black leather shards (I cut some small bag), white leather shards (I cut some ballet shoes);

- Fliseline (for facing fabric);

- Threads.




Garment Type
Cotton, Leather/Fur


  • Bathina bag pattern, I used the idea of bathina handles, not the shape of a bag ;)
  • my Bernina sewing machine
  • my sister Alina for initial inspiration ;-)

    Hi, Alina! thanks for your comment! I’ll say hi to her for sure))) Actually a bag does not have a bottom, but I guess It would be better if it had. So if I make the same form bag, there will be bottom. As it is now – is more suitable for flat staff ;-)

    How did you do the bottom of the bag? It looks like it’s flat with those apples in it… And round when it hangs. How does it look hanging when the apples are in? Say hi to your sister from another Alina (that’s me) :)
