Present Jam: Ngud’ by KWESTA ft CASSPER NYOVEST



The weekend is here!! I hope your week was chilling, if not take this my first DIY post and coolio *inserts laughing emoji here* So, DIY Tote bag, with small fur pockets, let me quickly take you through.

First of, the fabric I used is called Calico…


It is a plain-woven textile that is made from unbleached and most time not fully processed cotton, it is quite coarse and thin… and the best part, it is very cheap!! I’m guessing because it is not fully processed. To sew this bag, it took less than 2 yards of this fabric which cost less than #300, that is less than a dollar (depending on where you’re purchasing it from).


I had it sown into a Tote bag because tote bags are effortlessly chic I like how  they can swallow (my choice of words) whatever you put in them and still look good.


Tote bags are totally in now, and I have one (a very affordable one) Yaaaaay!! After the bag was sown, I thought it looked plain, so I cut out a furry pocket from an old skirt, cut it half and had them sown on the bag, you can totally use any fabric for the pocket, the calico fabric color will permit almost any fabric from prints, to denim… just do you.


Do have a lovely weekend, I will chat with you soon, till the next blog post, stay beautiful. xx


What do you think about Tote bags?? What do you think about the calico tote bag? If you were to make this bag, what fabric will you use for the pocket(s) or what finishing touches will you add to it?
