Stitchin Sisters Booty Bags completed
As you may have read in the past (from previous ramblings, ooops I mean postings) on Tuesday afternoons, I have a couple of friends come round for a sewing session, and I help them with making things, such as PETAL and also by showing them how to make bags....well being a crazy bag lady, I belong to a few bag making groups on the internet, and back in March, one of them had a sew a long for a Booty Bag.....couldn't not do that one, so without further adieu, I present to you....Marions Booty bag.
This one was actually made from a skirt not jeans as per the pattern...long story and I won't go there, as it would embarrass Marion greatly to think anyone and everyone could possibly read about her stuff ups!
Anyhow, I think she did a wonderful job...and see the rings on the straps? Ok, lean a little closer, they're actually wooden curtain rings! We really made hers a recycling whizz didn't we? I have a whole heap of both 2nd hand/pre loved wooden curtain rings (coz I knew they'd come in handy one day maybe!) and heaps and heaps of wooden beads that were either a car seat cover or a beaded screen thing that hangs on doorways.
Then of course we have mine. I almost did mine completely like the pattern, except for the magnet closure. I love how the straps are done via the pattern...this is the first time I've tried this technique and I just know there's going to be alot more done on future bags.
If you would like one of these bags, then you will be able to purchase something similar for a special special price of $25.00 (AUD). Just email me and I'll get back to you with some questions about your preferences and what's the easiest method for you to pay, and we'll take it from there.
Mine shown on the left, is not for sale, however, I can replicate it to a certain extent (Have enough of the lining fabric left over), it would just depend on what jeans I can find.
