It all started when I came across this bag on Yoshimi's blog. I like bucket bags but I do so hate the way everything collects up at the bottom of the bag. Yoshimi had cleverly made dividers in hers which was a brilliant idea. While sorting out and putting away summer clothing I came across an old pair of jeans, so I thought I would recycle them and make Yoshimi's hatoto bag. I have to say I like it, just the right size for me, the straps are not too long and dont fall off my tiny shoulders, I think I would put a fastener on next time.what is even better is that it
lays flat for storage.
I like bags, but I havent the space to store lots of different bags to coordinate with my wardrobe, also I am lazy and cannot be bothered to take everything out and of one bag into the other, resulting in me usually using one or two bags through the seasons.
Which brings me onto my next idea....What if I made a variety of these bags, some in linens, ultrasuede, cottons for the summer & leatherette and waterproof fabrics for the winter. Of course I could customise them so they are not all the same. They could all store flat for easy storage (very important for me) and I make a removable liner that fits inside
Because (a) I just have to lift all the contents out in one go and
(b) It makes storing my other bags easier as they wont be as bulky.
So I set about creating one.
|It is a quilted inner with outer pockets. You can even turn|
it inside out as well, and have the pockets on the inside if you wish
|It hold everything I needs|
I am really pleased with it. What do you think
