A Spring Bag

DO IT YOURSELF.

Spring this year is set to have a floral base for those that are with the strongest, most prominent trends.  In other words, there’s nothing very surprising this spring, but all the same a floral pattern is always welcome. Like the first tulips on the dining table. Therefore, this time I have transformed an old bag into an ‘it’ piece of spring.

You will need:

  • a bag (preferably four-sided and made of artificial leather or cloth),
  • a number of flowers of various sizes and colours,
  • needle,
  • thread and
  • scissors.

Choose a bag that is a bit worn and needs some work due to wear and tear. I chose an artificial leather summer bag in turquoise blue, which is thin and soft enough for sewing.

First, place the flowers you have chosen onto the bag to check the pattern and position where they are to be sewn. When you’ve settled on a pattern, start sewing. As my bag is not opened on top but on the side, I first sewed the flowers furthest from the zip and therefore hardest to reach. When the flowers are well placed and properly sewn on, you can pat yourself on the back for creating a new and unique bag. I’m going to carry it in the spring – as turquoise is very fashionable – and in summer too, when I can combine it with summer dresses.
