Yeah I’m in my revival geek – happy goth phase. Hence this simple bag to carry across the chest with an appliqué of Harlock’s symbol : the skull.
Harlock is called “Albator” in French and is a cartoon/manga hero from my childhood.
Ah … Albator, the space pirate, the love of my life when I was 12… * gets her ocarina out* … * Puts her ocarina back in her pocket at the view of menacing stares *
This is a self-draft pattern for a sling bag.
The tutorial is already available in French, on my French blog : Couture facile : Sac bandoulière
This bag is quite simple to make. My version is lined with a small pocket on the inside but I also indicate in the tutorial how to sew a version without lining, for those who want a bag ultra quick and easy to make with only 3 pieces to sew together.
The main fabric gray linen.
The appliqué was made with a scrap of “cool cords skulls slipper” by Robert Kauffman. It is a fine cord that I used for an A-line dress for Petite Chérie. A little mise-en-abîme since the skull appliqué is made in a skull print fabric.
It was my first appliqué… Despite some mishaps I managed it. I just found it a bit long, I must say that it is altogether my fault, I did not choose the most simple shape.
The lining is pale pink cotton.
The inside pocket is gray linen with a small patch of “cool cords skulls slipper” sewn on it.
