Recycled Reversible Bag
I made Novita's Reversible Bag, again.
This time I recycled the fabric for the bag, using cotton lace that was once sewn to make a tunic in May. I was hoping to sew a casual tunic using this lace, but I just found the fact that I was generally not so keen on this kind of garments after having my first tunic. I looked odd. It was just not right, but I didn't know how to describe other than that.
I used a light beige polyester fabric for supporting the cotton lace as well as an embroidered pink linen for the inner bag. Because I put a pocket and a set of magnetic closure inside of the bag, it's no longer reversible (again). FYI, I printed out the pattern larger (110%), as I carry so much stuff all the time. I'm 166cm (5'5"plus alpha), if you use me as a scale of the picture.
By the way, my very flowery reversible bag was loved too much, and I have to say it's nothing but a ragged sac now. It was so very useful and I took it with me everywhere almost everyday till the silver coating of the fabric was too tired. Though I wanted to ignore that my beloved bag was getting rotten, I couldn't live like Linus van Pelt in the end. A bag cannot be a security blanket! I quickly changed my mind and I'm happy with this new one. I'm fickle? Maybe not. Probably, not.
P.S. This is what it was.
