Hipster Bag!

The idea of a hipster bag just rocks to me.
Like these images I posted about before.
or the hipster holster from this post.

I mean, come on, don't you just LOVE this creation by Hyena?
Hyena's etsy shop. Her blog.

This is a far cry from the old bum bag/fanny pack of the 80's.

Ideas for making one from old jeans.

Inspiration from Chick on a Mission.


This interesting scarf bag is made by Etsy designer Rajulparis.
The description says, "Combination of a Scarf + wallet equals a Echarpe hip bag.
Here in Paris woman sometime use Scarf as belts. Écharpe in French mean Scarf.
Combining the 2 giving a Roomy, fashionable and functional hip - waist bag for Woman on the go.
Stylish, chic, feminine detailing. Signature pleats, african fabric and polyester-nylon.
Pack along for the trip , and stash everything you need for a day.
Or a night out in the town with every thing you need right on your hip!"


So when you consider making a bag this time, consider alternative shapes and construction than you would normally go to.
Tweak a shape, add a pleat, make a different kind of strap...
or set it on your hip.
