DIY TOTE BAG
There are times whilst I get disturbed by the amount of belongings I've to hold on a daily basis, being a fashion student particularly during stitching classes.
Well this project was on top of my directory but I was looking for really solid fabric that could hold weight of fabrics, accessories, and notebook simultaneously. As soon as if found this old skirt which I don't put on any longer, bonus its black “black is my darling"; fabric is polyester and rich in texture. So without more ado, thought of bracing it into something handy than throwing on a trash.
YOU WILL NEED
- long strip or belt from old bag
- Sewing Machine
With the seam opener first remove the belt of skirt.
Next attach zipper at the waist line.
It should look as image above, then turn skirt inside-out and sew the hem of skirt.
I got this belt out of another old bag and did as "cut-paste", you can simply get a cotton webbing from craft store or make a long strap by yourself.
For additional oomph i painted "MY CHANEL IS AT HOME".
