Choses faites – Sac à main

I’ve really tried to step up my game in recent years when it comes to making clothing and accessories. It all began when I received my serger for my 21st birthday. Since them I also try to finish seams professionally and make store quality clothing. I’m by no means a pro, but I think I do a pretty decent job in fooling people into thinking what I make is store-bought 😉

This here is a purse I made as a Christmas present for my sister-in-law. She likes to shop at Urban Outfitters, so I grabbed a photo of one of their purses and made my own version.

My version of the purse cost me about $15 in hardware and the fabric is leftover from my stash. The grey wool houndstooth is fabric from a vintage skirt that I shortened.  I wish I could sew vinyl and leather but I just don’t have the equipment for it, so I settled on reinforced suiting fabric and wool. It took me about a day to make.

Urban Outfitters version - a little dull for my taste

My version

Includes adjustable strap, working front pockets and magnetic snap under main flap

Inner lining and pockets with matching heavy duty zipper.
