I love the way how you come up with a a great stuff out of a coat you are very creative.


This looks great, I'd love to make one... and I'm librarian, so I tried to find your elusive book. Is it Refashioned Bags: Upcycle Anything into High-Style Handbags?

This is totally awesome! Did you use a pattern for it? If so can you share which one?


Great bag!
Thanks for the inspiration.

That is just the cutest bag!! Great choice of suit...the fabric is awesome, really really like the details...buttons, pleating, pockets, scarf! Too cute!

I would so totally buy this!! You've got some great sewing talent...awesome!!!


This is a fabulous project, and so nicely done. I agree, if you are going to make an effort to do something, you should do it 'right'! Great job :)


I love this..and I am sure my girls would too! Do you have a pattern you could share for making one? Would love to surprise them with one for their birthday's this spring!
