DIY: Pyramid Wrist Bag

Holiday parties all around and you really don't want to be carrying a large handbag that makes it difficult to dance or has you worrying about keeping an eye on it when you leave it aside.
Spacious enough to carry your necessities and small enough to keep it around your wrist at all times.


 This wristlet measures approx 18cm/7'' so adjust your leather size accordingly if you want a smaller or larger version.


You will need:

- a sewing machine (it doesn't have to be a professional one as in the pictures)
- metallic leather fabric (you can use any leather you prefer but do opt for an animal friendly version if possible)
- a zipper measuring approx. 13cm/5" long
- metallic clasp and rings/links for the strap
- scissors
- tailor's chalk or a fabric pen
- pen and paper

Kostas used a thick faux leather fabric to make a more rigid structure so that the bag will keep its shape even if it is empty. You can use a lighter weight cotton fabric or any other fabric you like. In such a case remember to use fabric interface.

Start by creating the template for the wristlet by drawing four equilateral triangles (three for the sides and one for the bottom of the wristlet) on your paper and cut them out using your scissors. On two of them you will cut the zipper opening as you can see in the picture below. The opening must be exactly as long as the zipper that you will use.
 Position the shapes on your leather, trace them with your tailor's chalk and cut them out using your scissors.

Now, lets sew it up.

Begin by sewing the edges of the two triangles that are meant for the zipper. Remember to double check that the opening measures as long as the zipper. 

Sew the zipper on the opening.
Continue by sewing the third triangle onto the piece.

Sew the sides together so that you create the pyramid shape. Stop the last seam 1cm from the edge  creating a small hole.
Measure the opening of your metallic ring and cut a piece of leather of that size and about 1-1,5cm long. Position the ring halfway the piece of leather and then sew it in the small hole we created.

Undo the zipper so that you can turn the fabric inside out and sew the bottom part onto the piece.

Continue by making the handle strap. The size of your clasp ring will determine the width of the  fabric that you will cut for this step.
  The one in the photos is 1,6cm wide so Kostas cut a 4cm wide and 42cm long piece of leather. 
The width must be approx. double the width of your clasp link plus a little bit extra for seam allowance. The length is totally up to your preference.

 Fold the strap fabric in two to create the handle and sew along the edges.
  
Put the strap through the clasp's ring, fold it in two and sew near its edge.

Attach the clasp on the link on top of your pyramid and you are done!

10 Stylish Sweaters To Wear This Season


Baby it’s starting to get cold outside. We’ve been longing for sweater weather since the very first day of summer. And now, we can rejoice! It’s probably because we finally won’t complain about the fact that our country is a giant microwave but mostly because we can finally wear our cozy sweaters again. Thanks to designers like Kenzo, Stella McCartney, and Burberry, sweaters have become one of the staple pieces in every girl’s wardrobe, especially now that it has been seen all over the runways worn with trousers and even pencil skirts.
But while we’d like to own a designer sweater, there are a lot of budget-friendly options that are equally stylish and comfortable. These fashion-meets-function knits are definitely a must-have!

Spice Up Your Wardrobe With This Season’s Hottest Shoes

While sneakers and flat shoes are on everyone’s radar right now, there’s a style of stilettos that make up for all the heels trying to take back the spotlight. With its ability to be feminine, edgy, and sultry at the same time, the lacy sandals can make an instant upgrade to any outfit. It can be worn with anything from a casual getup to a party dress, to basically anything in between. Plus points for its power to elongate legs.
The lace-up sandals are surely THE heels of the season. Call it the modern corset if you please; they can definitely spice up your wardrobe.
