KAWAII chubby bow bag

7 Nov

Wanna see something really cute?

I made this cute little shoulder bag out of a turtleneck jumper!! The lining is a pillowcase, and guess how much I paid for them?? NOTHING!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I picked up both free from a car-boot seller who wanted to go home, the jumper was ruined because someone had tumble dried it, it was supposed to be size 10 but looked like it would only fit a 3 year old.

I used 3 different tutorials:

  • Not Dabbling In Normal did a great tutorial on turning a sweater/jumper into a bag, ages and AGES ago my artsy friend Catie suggested the link to me on facebook.
  • To line the bag I consulted Very Purple Person’s reversible bag tutorial… clearly I didn’t use the pattern… and it’s a bit wasted because it’s not a reversible bag… but it’s a good way to line a bag.
  • And oh-so-cute bow was crafted out of the turtle neck collar from the original jumper using the Parisienne bow technique which I fist discovered on Burdastyle, but now have etched into the back of my sewing brain.

This bag also includes a little embroidered tag so when I get famous whoever owns it will be able to sell it for lots of money šŸ™‚

but enough talk, more pictures!!!
