I’ve been feeling creative lately and been dying to create something using this greyscale “fuck” fabric my roommate had lying around. With the laptop clutch craze going around, I decided that’s what I needed.
Next, was the hunt for the perfect sized, shade, and priced zipper. I ended up at B&Q Trimmings on 38th street, which was sooo much cheaper in everything than M&J and also much more helpful! Safe to say I’ll be going back for all my trimmings and non-fabric needs.
Now, for the pictures: I started by cutting the fabric, sewing the bottom and parts of the sides, then sewing the zipper on.
Maven got in the way a little. It came out alright; I forgot I hadn’t sewn anything since I was 18 but it was great to get back on a machine. Then, I modeled it in what I wore for the day!
Enjoy, and hopefully there will be more DIY’s to come.
