MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED: Fabric stripes (any fabric is ok, soft material is easier is to work with). Strong thread and a needle One button.

Cut (or rip) your fabric into strips. Make several strips, no longer than 1 metre. Make a braid using 3 strips at a time. I like to mix glitter thread between my strips. I like to use left-over fabric from the clothes I make, so I can recycle it and use the colours that I like! :-).

Knot one end of your braid and take your meedle and thread and start to sew. You can work in a circle or horizontally, it’s up to you: there’s no standard way to sew it, just be sure that your project is compact and strong. To make this bag work in a circle starting from the bottom, keeping the braids flat.

When finished make another knot at the end of your braid and sew it on the last row at the top. Then add a little strip of fabric to make the button hole and sew the button on to the front of the purse. To make the shoulder belt use aprox. 1,5 meter of braid and sew it on to the purse.

Have fun creating! We’d LOVE to see your results!
