I was excited when I first read about this contest over at A Lemon Squeezy Home. You know how much I like making bags. This contest is right up my alley! So, I got out my sketchbook and began putting down my ideas, but nothing gelled for me. Until the day of the deadline for entering. After a crazy mad day of sewing - no test run on this baby, there was no time. Here is my entry - uploaded with less than 30 minutes before the cut-off. Whew.
To finish things off, it seemed fitting to add a bold, bright print by Robert Kaufman as the lining for my new leather bag. Interior pockets will help keep things organized. The transformation from jacket to bag is complete. I just wish this idea had not waited until the 11th hour to come to me! lol
Please go here to have a look at the other entries to the contest. You'll be inspired by the creativity, I promise!
PS. You'll probably spot my second entry, made this summer.
