Pattern + Hardware + Fabric= Handmade Couture

Sewing Pattern:



The Swoon Laney Reversible Hobo is a great match for our inspiration bag. It’s a casual slouchy hobo that would translate beautifully into leather. Bonus: it’s a freebie!

The Laney was designed for beginning bagineers and features a magnetic snap closure like our inspiration bag. Customize it further by adding your choice of pocket style in the lining. At 15” wide x 10” tall x  6” deep she is slightly smaller than our inspiration bag but you can choose to enlarge the pattern in you’d like a larger bag.

Laney features identical seams to our inspiration bag, use a contrasting top stitching along the front seams to recreate the look of the Cervo.

Hardware:

The Cervo is designed as a casual bag and is minimalist with hardware, for this look you just need 1 magnetic snap for the closure:

Fabric:



The Tannery NYC has the perfect leather for us! Check out this gorgeous bright red leather:

If leather isn't your thing, try some faux leather. Sew Sweetness carries faux leather in the perfect weight for bag making and has a beautiful red color:




Another great option is natural cork fabric, which is available from MM Cork Supply in Canada or from Sew Sweetness in the US.  You can get cork in a various colors and finishes, like this red:

You can choose to do this in whatever fabric you are comfortable working with! A fun cotton print, canvas or even denim!  That's the benefit of creating your own, it's what YOU want it to be. Handmade can be couture too!
