(Unfortunately my long, wide and flat butt cheeks are not made for jeans, so I'll just have to dream on....)
Back to the bag - which by the way looks great with my butt cheeks!
Inspired by Sophie I decided to make my own bucket bag. The bag is a simplified version of this pattern. I omitted the inside pocket and made non adjustable strap which I sandwiched between the lining and the exterior fabric.
The hardest part were the grommets/eyelets. Not setting them but making the freakin' holes!! The little package of grommets I bought came with some sort of punching tool but I just couldn't hammer the holes! I then tried with some (cheap) punch pliers. A little better but I still had to use force and scissors to make proper holes. Any tips?
The pale pink perforated faux leather used for the exterior of the bag is from The Sweet Mercerie. Isn't it gorgeous? It's a little stretchy and pretty easy to sew with. Just not easy to punch holes in!
We are going to be besties this bucket bag and me...that is if my teen doesn't steal it!
