Hallo creators!

I bet many of you having a similar leftover. So why not recycle it into a cool denim crossbody purse like I did?

Seems like a long journey? Trust me! It worth to try. I’ve spent 4 hours (more or less) to finished the purse (I am a beginner sewer). Also, while this project is possible to be hand stitched, I stitched it with my sewing machine. So you can add 1-2 hours if you are hand stitching. If you still too lazy, let me give you a photo series of the final product ( and how I styled it ) to motivate you.

See you in the next post and keep create!

The other thing is, I never made a skirt with a pattern before. And since I’m in a serious sewing learning now, I  got so excited to have more and more pattern.

Than I continued with finding for the best tutorial. I was so amazed, some people made a very easy tutorial on a circle skirts. Unfortunately, that ‘radius’ method is not very flexible with all fabric size that available in your house. Most of the fabrics in Indonesia comes in 1,25meter wide. If you fold it twice, with different directions, you might not get a skirt that fall under your knees (which my favorite). Fortunately, I found the solution on this video of Q2HAN. See how she made the skirt part of the dress? That’s the basic idea on how I made my skirt.

I was actually planned to make a circle skirt, but since I don’t have fabric, I ended made an A-Line skirt. The good news is, using this method, you can make an A-line skirt or a circle skirt, depends on your available fabrics (I’ll explain about it in the step by step pictures). No formula, just your waist measurement.
