Downsizing is Chic And So Are Mini Bags


This time around, the fashionable thing to do is “the smaller, the better” as far as your bag-carrying self is concerned. So, by all means, it’s high time to consider downsizing your purse because mini bags happen to be one of the hottest trends these days especially in the fall season. From miniature designer totes to the smallest of sling bags, fashion addicts everywhere are spotted strutting the streets with light baggage.

Nicolas Ghesquière might be partly to blame for this mini bag trend as his Petite Malle bag for Fall-Winter 2014 has been one of the most coveted bags of the season. As mini bags are your hottest ticket this season, we are guiding you on how to do it with these street style ensembles. If you’re always on the move and your arms get sore from lifting heavy bags, this new ubiquitous trend on the accessory department is a certain plus. These totes can simply do a lipstick, a small Moleskine notebook and a credit card case and you’re good to go. We reckon that it’s definitely time to hit the streets carrying the bare minimum.

DIY HOLOGRAPHIC CLUTCH BY Alyssa Renee


This is a fairly straight forward tutorial for a lined zippered pouch. 
I love this one because it's just the right size for your necessities, 
and it would be a perfect bag inside of a bag for traveling and such. 
Who says you can't travel in style? Silliness. 

SUPPLIES
- 9" ZIPPER (I USED THE FANCY SPARKLY KIND)
- LINING FABRIC
- ROTARY CUTTER OR SCISSORS
- SEWING MACHINE, OR NEEDLE AND THREAD
- Holographic fabric paper (felt aisle in Hobby Lobby) or holographic leather

First, cut the leather/fabric paper in half, and the lining into two pieces with 
measurements 5.5" by 4.5".
 
Line up one piece of lining behind the zipper, flush to the edge, as shown
.
Then lay a piece of the holographic fabric face down on top of the zipper, 
lining it up with the same edges. Pinning is not a bad idea here, but I didn't 
have much trouble free-handing it. Sew with a 1/4" seam allowance

Once those pieces have been sewed together, flip both fabrics to the other side 
and top-stich with about 1/4" allowance again. Take care to make sure your lining 
fabric isn't bunching up underneath while you sew. This will ensure the lining won't 
get caught up in the zipper. Repeat these steps for the other side.

Now comes the hardest part; sewing over the zipper. Here the holographic fabric 
goes right sides together, and lining pieces together. Unzip your zipper a little bit 
over halfway, otherwise you won't be able to flip it. Make sure your zipper is folded 
towards the holographic fabric, meaning the teeth will be towards the lining fabric. 
I started sewing at the bottom of the lining (bottom right corner of the photo) and 
over the part of the zipper where there weren't teeth to sew over. 
Continue around the edges until you reach the zipper. Now, go slowly, and use the 
wheel to manually sew over the zipper. If you reach a part where the needle won't go 
through, pick up the foot, and adjust as necessary until the needle makes it past the 
rough patch. Leave at least 4 inches open at the bottom of the lining.

Trim each corner, especially the holographic fabric, to make nice corners when 
you flip it. Now, reach your hand into the gap of the lining, through the zipper, 
to the holographic fabric and pull it through the hole in the lining. IT'S LIKE MAGIC. 
You can handsew or machine sew the lining closed. Now, that wasn't so hard was it? 
Show it off, or make one for all of your friends! I know you want to.
