Last summer while in Encinitas for my brother's wedding in Swamii Beach, I visited a great Farmer's Market and spotted the cutest Boho chic hip bag. It soon became an obsession of mine. I used the fabric from a well worn favorite Roxy skirt that I purchased in Rosarito Beach, a pair of cargo pants that I previously re-fashioned into a messenger bag (Dec 29th, 2011 blog post). I also picked up a grip of Singer Sewing notions on clearance at a Von's market and sewed the buttons I purchased onto the strap.
I will tweak it a little next time, I think I would like bags on both hips because I love looking Hippy as long as I don't appear too "hippy."
