Little straw bag DIY

The inspiration

Here's my lasted diy! A straw bag is perfect for summer but it doesn't necessarily have to be that giant bag we carry at the beach, it can be an elegant small bag to carry during the day made precious with beads and silver wire. This bag is made out of what we call in Italy "american tablecloths" but i'm sure that is not their name in America. They are small tablecloths suitable to set the table for one person. As soon as i saw them they remainded me of the famous boucle fabric used so much by Chanel so at that point the idea of the bag came on its own.
What do you think of the result? Tomorrow i'll give you all the details to make your own.

Check the tutorial here

Questa borsetta è il mio ultimo progetto,cosa c'è di meglio di una borsetta di paglia per l'estate? Ma non deve essere necessariamente il borsone da mare, può essere una borsetta arricchita di perline e fili preziosi così da diventare una borsetta da giorno ma elegante. Potete credere che sia fatta con delle tovagliette americane in paglia?
Appena le ho viste mi hanno ricordato il tessuto di tweed così amato dalla maison Chanel e a quel punto l'idea della borsa ha preso forma da sola. Che ne dite?
Vi racconterò tutti i dettagli domani.

Wow, scopro ora il tuo diy con tovaglietta. Anche io mi sono fatta due clutch con tovaglietta ma sono venute decisamente più rock (e non così chic!)

La prox volta provo con il tuo modello..
