DIY MOSCHINO INSPIRED BEAR BAG

The original beauty

I have been wanting to do another DIY post for you guys for a little while now as they are one of my favorite things to do! After getting all excited over Moschino’s Fall/Winter 2015 runway collection, designed by Jeremy Scott. I decided I needed the bear bag to then discover it was sold out everywhere and way too expensive for my student lifestyle.

I attempted to sew my own version but it ended up looking very different but still cute nonetheless!

Here are some rough step by step instructions on how I made my Moschino inspired bear bag but I myself winged it so I thought i’d tell you how I did it and let you guys just run with it… You might even think of better ways to do it than me!

Step 1: First I snipped the head off the toy and pulled out all the stuffing. Then I patched up the hole ready to create a new hole for the purse fitting. I bought the purse fitting from Spotlight (gigantic sewing store) and measured and cut out the opening hole.

Step 2: Then I cut some rough fabric circles the size of the purse and sewed them together along half of the circle to create the inside lining of the purse. 

Step 3: I then lined up the lining with the purse edges and pinned them down and started to sew on the purse fitting. I used this link to see how to sew on a purse fitting but to be honest the row of holes is pretty obvious. 

Step 4: Once everything was sewn together I stole a chain from another bag of mine that was falling apart and attached it to the bag!

That is pretty much how I made the purse I probably left out a few things and you might be left slightly confused but I think you guys will figure it out.

Love Alex
