Glam Up A Bag

I was inspired by this post on Sutton Grace to "glam up" a bag.

(Sutton Grace is one of my favorite blogs. The first blog of hers I first saw was THIS one of a homemade play kitchen from an entertainment center and I was hooked. Go check out her blog and wish, like me, that she was your next door neighbor so you could eat her food and copy her projects!)

Inspired by her blog, I decided to take a logo bag and make it more "me". So I took this bag that my husband brought home from work one day - it had been sitting in the back of a closet:

And turned it into this:

Here's a close-up of the patch:

MUCH BETTER! Not that there was anything wrong with the other logo, I just wanted something different. My bag redo is not as fancy as the inspiration bag. I didn't actually do that much. All I did was machine embroider a groovy camera design from Urban Threads onto some pink cotton, then sew the embroidered cotton onto the bag, kind of all haphazardly. I left the outside cut edges of the fabric to fray, because I think that might look cool. We'll see!

Thanks to Sutton Grace for the inspiration to cover logo bags!

Later skaters,



I love comments!
