First man bag

This bag was made as a birthday present. I made it from my dad's pants. They are wool pants that shrunk in the wash.


I used the back pocket of the pants on the flap. 

 I put the keyring on a rope, instead of the ribbon I usually use.

Contrasting red lining.

I also posted it on Burdastyle, a sewing website and I've gotten more comments than I have on any of my other projects. I'm very excited, I'm definitely going to be making more bags for men.

My name is Natasha. I studied product design, but fell in love with sewing after buying a box of antique buttons. Now I make handbags and other accessories from upcycled materials. I live in a beautiful coastal town in South African with my boyfriend and our three dogs where we go for walks, sleep in and do lots of cooking.
