DIY Half Moon Bag
C’est moi , again. This time I made a half circle bag from pleather. It has a 6 cm side, making it spacious 🙂 Also found a ( lazy ) way to sew the pockets inside. The straps are covered with matching fabric as the pockets and they are attached together with double cap rivets.
I discover when drawing out the pattern that to make the bag look rounded and sweet looking, the base have to be extended. If it is a true semi circle it will have a harsher look. So if you are going for a “bitchin’ lookin’ ” kinda bag, a true semi circle, as a clutch, will give you that feel.
Here’s the bag’s body pattern with the rivet placements ( in cm ):
Notice the ” overlap* ” point there. The ends of the straps overlaps at the bottom so one rivet will be holding 2 straps in place. Therefore choose a thinner weight strap for this project. I use a pretty thick one and the bottom rivet kept popping out.
A closer look :
The pink dot is a rivet that goes on the top strap. This will help the bottom rivet which is holding 2 straps to stay in place.
