I like to take walks, but I hate taking my purse with me. So I’m usually trying to cram my wallet, phone, keys, and anything else – like dog poop bags – in various pants or hoodie pockets. It’s annoying.
If only there were a way to find the perfect bag… a mini bag, if you will, that would have just enough room for those bare essentials. And the strap would be long enough that it would rest nicely on my hip on not have to be held on my arm or shoulder.
Yes. If only.
This step-by-step DiY tutorial will show you how to make a perfect bag for when you don’t want to haul around a clunky purse. It’s wee, it’s got a nice long strap… plus lots of pockets to fit your crap. (Hey, that rhymed!)Read more…
You guys have begged and begged, and it only took me five years to put together an updated version of my original bag tutorial that shows how to add a zipper. Since you waited so patiently, I’ll show you how to add a zipper at the top of the bag, but also… ZIPPER POCKETS! Everything is better with zipper pockets.Read more…
And while it will probably take you a few hours to make, the materials are very inexpensive. If you’re on a budget, this is the skirt for you!
Here was the cost of my skirt:
$3.50 – 3 yards of tulle
$10.00 – 1 yard underlayer fabric
$1.50 – 1 yard elastic
$15 – total
You could get a little crazier with some fancy tulle (something with sparkles or sequins) and a more expensive underlayer (satin, taffeta, etc.) and still be well under $50 for your total budget!
