WHAT DO YOU USE TO CARRY YOUR EMBROIDERY PARAPHERNALIA?

#seamstress #wwproblems I was carrying this ugly ziplock pouch with my threads for a while now for when I m doing #embroidery while in the transports or away from home and was feeling pretty ashamed for having such an ugly thing in my bag. Lazyness winning it all I really had to wait the moment when the bottom openned and I was gonna loose things to find a better option. I then decided to go for a gorgeous #vintagezipper in a #powderpink color with #ivory #silkorganza so I could see through which I find convenient. I aslo added some #couture#frenchseams ET VOILA! Pretty happy that good old plastic bag collapsed!👧🏻🤘🏻#sewing

SEWING WITH LEATHER! From a pile of leftovers to a handbag.

Last summer while having my stall as usual at the Brunswick Festival in Hove, I was selling a Vintage dress to a lovely woman who just found the perfect one to match a piece of leather she just bought minutes ago…..

That was such an amazing quality of lambskin and I immediatly fell in love with the colour and the cute silver dots. I was lucky enough to be told that there were a pile of these left, for sale , just 2 stalls away from mine, at the stall of my lovely neighbour Jo. I bought all that was left, not knowing for sure what I was gonna do with these. Jo told me she silk printed them herself but couldn t find the time to use them.

I decided to give a go and try to make the perfect sized handbag, with a lot of zippered pockets and a removable padded pouch for my Ipad mini.

Getting a bit of inspiration and measurements from a friend' s bag I pulled out the rotative cutter and looked for the vintage zippers I had in my stash.

It was also the first time I used the very handy hand press machine, so much more efficient than the hammer method.

Making a bag needs a lot of thinking and for me it was a first to do such a sophisticated one, so I made a bit of mistakes, but the result is ok. And I ve got all the pockets and places to tidy my survival kit while travelling.

And, cherry on the cake, I ve got enough leather left to make one or 2 zipper pouch like the one I use for my drawing tools.

 

Next step might be to sew a black quilted lambskin handbag, Chanel style!…..
