A few weeks ago I fell in love with this nautical bag from Anthropologie. I was determined to make it myself. Here's the original at $68.00.
And here's mine at just $20.
I LOVE it! It came out just the way I wanted. I hand painted the larger striped fabric because I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. I added the faux leather bottom and matched the leather look on the straps. I was able to find the red and white small polka dot fabric for the lined interior. With rope and grommets it feels like I'm ready to go sailing.
