Now, I let you guys with Vicky :)
Create a cute tweed tote bag from a former skirt.
This bag is a gorgeous size. It has an internal slip pocket and is fastened with a magnetic snap. The front of the bag is decorated with a flower brooch, which you can leave as adornment on the bag or wear on your jacket:)
To make you will need:
Wool/tweed fabric (I used a former skirt)
lining fabric (I used a former sheet)
glue gun for the flower
If you are using a former pleated skirt start by unpicking the seams of the skirt and removing any pleats and the waist band. Wash the fabric at the highest temperature you can in your washing machine which will felt 100% wool fabric.
To make the bag:
Cut from the wool/tweed
12.5" by 21" main body of bag
2 times 12" by 4" handles
Cut from the lining fabric
12.5" by 21"
Slip pocket piece 6" square
