I love plaid! I can't help it. This bag is my own design. I used reclaimed vintage fabric I found at the thrift store. Again, I used the faux suede from the remnant bin for the bottom of the bag and the strap. I'm online hunting for some more notions so I don't have to keep using these little purse snaps. Luckily it works for this bag, it's not as big as the old man bag. If anyone knows a good website that sells purse making supplies, please post a link, thanks!
This one's my fav, I used some vintage juvenile fabric for the inside of the front zipper pocket.
This bag reminds me of an old suit jacket with elbow patches. The fabric is a vintage hounds-tooth type polyester knit. I used a thick, microfiber type fabric for the bottom of the bag. Front of the bag
I am really proud of this one. I've been saving this vintage corduroy for quite some time, hoping my sewing skills would improve enough to dare cut into it. Finally the day has come. I didn't use a pattern or measure anything, I just saw it in my head and made it. I am thrilled with the outcome.
I had a lot of fun making this bag. I used some repurposed smurf bedsheets for the lining, a red polka dot cotton print that I had leftover from making xmas stockings and the outer fabric is a thick suit type material.
