here is the metallic gold leather bag i made from an upcycled and repurposed metallic gold leather skirt i found in nashville!
this photo makes it look more silver but it really is gold.
here is the back side and showing you the attached lining that i took out.
here i am just seam ripping, and seam ripping and seam ripping
here is the skirt inside out, no lining, and waistband detached
and here is another photo of the finished bag!
i made it with short handles, reusing the waistband, so it can hang off my arm or over my shoulder
it's lined with two different vintage fabrics and has a huge inside pocket
i like how in some light it looks more gold or less gold, but always metallic! i'm going to use it for a while. yeah, a new bag for me!
with some of the left over pieces i was able to make a few small zipper pouches!
one has a red zipper and one has a green zipper
both have the same vintage fabric lining shown here and both are for sale!
these would make adorable gifts!
get them while they last!
