The "Suitor" Bag

A man's thrifted "Suit" jacket & tie refashioned into a messanger bag!
Remember the "Boyfriend bag" purse from earlier? Well it's time to kick up the fashion ladies... it's a suit & tie affair. ;)

This Suit has been completely "Sew-Over-It" style refashioned into a sassy, classy and totally practical messanger bag. The back has two nice size pockets, the flap and tie closure are held secure by magnetic clasps. The bag has been reinforced with stiff lining, and double stitching so this bag holds its shape great!

The inner lining is a beautiful shimmery purple with floral print, also a upcycled shirt that was no longer in style but had great fabric. This is a totally unique, fun and sassy bag!
The flap is decorated with a floral pin corsage made from left over fabrics.

This will soon be added to my etsy shop, look for it and others coming soon!!!

  1. love this idea! the pockets in the back were unexpected and totally fun & practical. i especially like the contrast of the uber feminine interior fabric. i can't wait to see what you create next.
