Take a bag some fabric and a glue gun ...

I found this bag in a thrift shop and thought it would be perfect for those times when I only want a small bag rather than the usual mini suitcase I lug about. For instance, big bags are a pain on the tram or in a gallery - not so good in teeny tiny antique stores either.

Here 'tis - nice and neat with a lovely long strap for slinging across the body - yes I am one of those people and although I do not own a bum bag, I am probably only a few degrees separated from my bum-bag wearing sisters. The bag is about 25cms x 20cms. Perfect!


As you can see, it is in really good nick - I don't think it has ever been used. It is perhaps just a tad boring though. Maybe some fabric like this would fix up its sad drabness?


I found this fabric in an op shop years ago - it is quite fine so first I had to back it with some iron-on interfacing. Then I got out my trusty hot glue gun and did a little hot glue magic ...

Less drab, still stylish and very usable.

Maybe I should add a brooch too?
