Crossbody travel bag

27 Aug

My latest addition to my bag collection is this crossbody bag I purposely made for my upcoming holidays…. I needed a small – but not too small – bag to keep my passport, cell-phone, boarding card, etc… at hand, that could also be easily put away in a bigger bag (see here). So I used some Ikea fabric for the outside while the lining is a reminder I bought at my local market some time ago. The shoulder strap is recycled from an old bag, but since it’s black and doesn’t match with the fabric enough, I will probably replace it with a strap made of the very same fabric.

I also added a zip, to keep the precious things safely inside, a big pocket in the front with a hidden magnetic button, and a smaller pocket in the back. There’s also a small pocket inside.

On a second thought I could have used a black zip to match the recycled strap… mmmhh…. 😕

Easter gifts

25 Mar

Here are two fabric cases – cosmetic cases, that I made for my friends as Easter gifts.

The outer fabric is from Ikea, while the lining is a reminder I bought at my local market. Despite the fabric is the same, I tried to match the stripes with the colour of the zip (one beige and the other pink).

It was my first attempt with a lined item, so I can say that I’m pretty satisfied and most of all, learning the lining process has opened a whole new world in front of me… 🙂

BTW, for a more Easter touch I filled the cases with some fine chocolate eggs…
