Denim Pompon Bag
Sometimes when you don’t find the perfect accessories – you simply have to make them yourself. So I wanted a simple bag, which goes with almost any outfit. Lucky me, I still had an old pair of jeans from my husband that I don’t wear. Another benefit was that I wanted to cut them anyway as I needed some new denim shorts. 🙂
Long story short – I cut the pair of jeans and used one of the legs as fabric for the bag. I double layered the bag and put some cartons (wrapped with tape) in between the fabrics, so the clutch will be more stable and waterproof. 😉 By the way it took me a few days to sew the bag as my sewing machine broke down… I cut two small holes on each side of the bag, so I could change the clutch into a shoulder bag by adding a strap to the bag. After I finished all the sewing for the bag, I had to add some nice details to it and created this cute pompon keychain. I picked a simple grey and some popping red wool for the pompons.
I have to tell you I am totally in love with my new denim pompon bag. The best thing about it is that it goes with a lot of my outfits and it always adds some color and individuality to every style. 😉 This time I wore a red flower dress with it. I got the dress a while ago, so you won’t be able to find it online, but I found some other similar flower dresses for you which are just as cute – like this one and this one. I combined my espadrilles with it, which I bought a while ago on a Spanish farmer’s market.
Thank u so much for reading!
And for those of you who are looking for a denim bag – I found some for you in different price ranges (from low to high): this one with butterflies and roses (you have to be quick, it’s almost sold out…), this quilted one, this one with stars and this beautiful Valentino one, which is actually similar to the first one I listed… 😉
