Handmade personalised Hobo bag made with stunning vintage floral fabric that was once curtains in 1971!

The perfect style to carry it all and look super stylish and unique with this unusual double fold-over bag which is roomy whilst maintaining a slim profile.  The adjustable strap enables you to wear it as a cross-body messenger style, or as a shoulder bag.

My customer posted the curtains to me to up-cycle.  I can make these lovely bags by up-cycling soft furnishings like curtains, cushion covers and bedding as well as items of clothing.   Maybe you have something that you don’t use anymore but you’ve kept because you love its colours and pattern.  Maybe it has sentimental value and memories attached to its history.

I will be using high quality stabilisers and interfacings so don’t worry if you think your fabric is too thin, these will give the right structure for sewing and a little padding too.  Up-cycling projects are very soul satisfying and I will always treat your fabrics with care and respect.  It is a pleasure to create something beautiful and functional from something that has a past.

You can choose to have yours personalised with any phrase, affirmation, a name or initials. The personalisation makes it super lovely to keep and treasure or to gift to someone special.  I am happy to chat with you to customise and personalise your set to make it perfect for you.
