Currently creating: Vintage fabric bag with circular handles


circular handle bag 1 circular handle bag 2 circular handle bag 3 circular handle bag 4The instant I spotted this amazing Danish seventies vintage fabric I designed this bag in my head. I ordered the handles and made a sewing pattern in anticipation for its arrival. I also made a pattern for a skirt that I’m making out of the rest of the fabric.

I attached the handles by hand which took me longer than I was expecting it to but I’m so pleased with the end result that it doesn’t matter. I used medium weight sew-in interfacing to give the bag a bit of stiffness and I lined it with lemon yellow cotton fabric. There’s a mobile pocket inside it as well.

The bangles in the first photo are made by me, as is the crochet bobble stitch glasses case in the second photo. The dress is from Modcloth.
