Video: How to Make a Bag From a Soft Toy


Hope you're all safe and well!

Today I uploaded another IGTV video sharing my lastest fun project; a handbag, made out of an old Nemo toy; watch the video below to see the whole process!

I have tones of soft toys from when I was younger and I just can't bring myself to get rid of them haha, so I thought why not upcycle one of them and make myself a fun Nemo bag! I unpicked the top seam so that I could remove most of the stuffing and added a lining so nothing can get lost inside the bag. Then I sewed on a zip so nothing falls out and attached a long strap to Nemo's fin. I'm so happy with how it turned out and it was quite an easy project to do. I definitely want to try create more fun bags and why not give it a go if you have any old toys lying around! Make yourself a fun and different bag that is bound to catch everyone's eye.

I hope you enjoyed the video! I had so much fun making it and I can't wait to work on more creative projects soon!

Stay safe and best wishes,
