Let's get our hand onto this beautiful bohemian handbag! The best thing about it was, it was simple to make and everything it required was available at home. So, if you have some scrap fabric lying around and you want to make the most of it, you have come to the right place.
Let's start! Straight away!
Step 1: What You Will Need?
2. Needle and thread.
3. Decorative laces. It's totally upto you; how you want to decorate it.
4. Thick thread to make fringes.
5. Hot Glue.
Step 2: Cut.
Step 3: Sew the Base.
You want to make a simple running stitch and then repeat it twice to make sure it is secure enough and tie off a knot.
Similarly, I aligned the two edges together vertically and then sew the sides with running stitches. This made a pocket like structure.
Next, I folded a little less than a half of the pocket creased it there. Refer to the images. This is the base of our handbag.
Step 4: Decorate.
Now, grab your laces and sew them onto the bag. I alternated between a thick and a thin one. First make a fold at one end of a lace, and stitch it. Then place it on the bag and sew it with running stitches. Repeat for other layers.
While making my bag, I hadn't really planned out anything before. I hadn't thought of decorating in the beginning, so when sewing the laces, I had to do so from the inside, which was frustrating. So I would recommend that you do the decorating before you sew the sides of the bag.
Step 5: The Handle.
Now, it's time to attach the handle. As shown in the image, sow the ends of the handle in the sideline of the crease of the handbag.
To give some shape to the handbag, I cut out another strip and sow it to one side of the pocket of the bag, between the handle stitches on the crease. This part was a bit difficult, since i had to to from the inside of the bag. But yes, I managed.
Step 6: Done.
Now, all that is left is for you to flaunt your creation. Have fun crafting, if you do.
