This video is sponsored
in part by Bernina. Welcome to Make Thrift Buy, a show where I try and recreate items from the internet for a fraction of the cost. The inspiration for today’s episode is this bag from Lazy Oaf,
which is a cute little purse style shoulder bag with a a clasp closure, tassels and a long chain for the strap. Unfortunately Lazy Oaf
has a “we avoid” rating on Good On You, a website
that helps one find clothing brands that don’t exploit humans, animals or the environment. So, bow bow, Lazy Oaf. But it does make it a good candidate to recreate for ourselves. Now I’m not gonna be trying to
recreate this bag exactly, instead I’m gonna be
putting my own spin on it. But I am going to borrow a lot of elements from the Lazy Oaf bag. So let’s get started. First, let’s talk materials. So I want this fabric to
be the outside of my bag. I fell in love with this
made in Japan fabric when I was shopping for my
fabric boxes for the last video and so I came back to Yuzawaya and I got 20 inches of
this fabric for the bag. Next the lining. This was an end of the roll remnant so it was super discounted. It’s a lightweight cotton and I also got 20 inches of this fabric. This purse frame was something
I found at Yuzawaya as well, which I’ll be using for the
closure for the top of the bag. This chain for the bag strap has a length of 47 inches or 120 centimeters. I also got so craft glue. I have got this pointy thingy. Google tells me it’s called
a tailor’s awl, awl, awl? I don’t know how to pronounce that. It’ll come in useful later on but, a cheap wooden skewer
would work just as well. And finally, I’ve got some tassel trim. I got 20 inches of each trim. One’s sparkly and one that made
me think of unicorn colors. And 20 inches of both was more
then enough to make two bags. You can see why I love
Japanese craft stores so much. They had literally the exact things I needed to make this bag,
but if you’re not blessed with a nearby Yuzawaya, like I am, these things are available
from sites like Etsy and Ebay. To find something like my bag closure use the terms purse frame or bag hardware and it’ll take you in the right direction. Alright, so first thing I did was to open up the purse frame. It has a paper pattern inside it so that I can cut my fabric to
the right size for the frame. This pattern is a quarter
of the full pattern and it’s intended to be either
copied to it’s full size or placed along two
folded sides of fabric. Because I want to add tassels
to the bottom of the bag I want to cut out two
parts of this pattern from my main fabric. So I folded my main outer fabric in half and I placed this edge on
the fold, then cut it out. (upbeat music) I repeated this and now I have this. This piece will be the front of the bag and this will be the back. Because the fabric is two-sided I decided that I would put
the white with black flowers on one side and the black with
white flowers on the other. I thought it’d make it interesting to have a bag that’s different depending on which side is showing. To attach the tassels, first I lined the pastel trim up with this
straight bottom edge here and I cut them to the same size as the bottom edge of the bag. Then I flipped the
tassel trim up like this. Right sides together
with the outer bag piece, clipped it into place and sewed it down onto the fabric just using
a normal straight stitch. Once that was sewn on I
laid the sparkly silver trim on top, cut it to the same size and sewed it on like the other one. You can see that I sewed it on but it looks like it’s upside down because when the bag is
all sewed up and finished it’ll be flipped down like this. Trust me, this makes sense. For now I flipped it back up and let’s move on to the lining. Now, because I’m not adding
tassels to the lining piece it can be cut out according
to the bag’s pattern. To cut that out I folded the lining in half once then twice, so there’s four layers of fabric in total and then I placed the paper pattern so that these dotted edges are aligned along the two folded edges of the fabric. Then I cut around this and
unfolded it looks like this. (upbeat music) I then fold the lining piece
right sides together like this. Clipped it in place around the edges. And sewed it together like this. Which gave me a pouch
with open square corners. The corners are gonna be sewed separately to create shape in the purse. So I flipped the lining around so that one of the open corners looked like this and then I sewed this corner in place with a straight stitch. I repeated that on the other side and that gave me this pouch. So we’re putting the lining
pouch aside for the moment. I moved back to the
main fabric for the bag. So we’ve got one side that has tassel trim attached to the bottom and the other side of
the bag which doesn’t. I placed these two pieces
right sides together matching up their edges and corners and then I clipped them together along the bottom edge first. I sewed along the bottom
edge using a straight stitch to attach the two pieces. Now we have a fabric piece that looks just like that main pattern
and lining from the beginning. (bell chimes) I trimmed the seam allowance smaller as there was a lot of fabric
laying in this seam now. Then I moved the tassels out of the way pushing them into the center of the bag so that I don’t sew over
them in the next steps. With the pieces folded
right sides together I clipped around the edges this time and then I sewed them
together much like the lining down these two straight sides here. (upbeat music) I then flipped it to it’s side while holding the open corner. Making sure to push the tassels down out of the way while I did so. (upbeat music) And then I sewed the corners
of the bag together like this. And just a note here, I didn’t bother to press open the seam with
an iron before sewing it, because I felt that it
didn’t really matter but you can of course
do this if you want to. I then repeated this on the
other side for the other corner. (upbeat music) With the bag all sewn up, I turned it right ways out, taking care
to push out the corners. And here’s the two-sided outer of the purse with it’s tassels attached ready to have the lining put in. At this point I remembered that I wanted to add a pocket into the lining, which should have been
done back at this step. But, I really like to
have pockets in my bags so I decided, even
though it was a bit late, I would still add one by just carefully sewing it into place here. To make the pocket I cut out two identical rectangles of
size five by four inches. I placed the right sides together and then I sewed all
the way around the edges with a seam allowance at
three eighths of an inch leaving a small gap of two inches. When that was done I cut the corners of the seam allowance then I turned this right sides out through the gap, taking care to poke those corners out and I pressed it with an iron. Then I sewed the gap closed like this. Now if I had done this properly I would have then attached the pocket here before sewing up the lining. But because I didn’t do that, I placed the pocket into the lining here, pinned it in place and sewed it really, really carefully into place. Making sure not to sew through the other side of the
lining at the same time. I did it and now we have a pocket. Back to the bag construction. With the lining inside out
and the main fabric bag the right way around,
I placed the lining bag inside the main fabric bag like this, matching up the side
seams and the top edges. (upbeat music) Then I clipped the two together
around the top raw edges (upbeat music) and I sewed all the way
around the top edge. (upbeat music) Okay, now we’ve got this. It’s time to place it
into the purse hardware. So, I opened up the purse frame and I’m going to attach
it one side at a time. With my craft glue I coated the inside of one side of the frame with glue. The nozzle on my craft glue bottle is really good for this
because it makes it easy to get the glue in there,
but you could also use a brush or a skewer if you don’t have a glue with a nozzle like this. Once I had carefully coated the inside of the front of the frame I
left it for about one minute so the glue would become a bit more tacky. Then I started pushing the front raw edge of the bag inside the frame. This is a fiddly process. I’m not gonna lie, I was
really, really careful not to accidentally yank the fabric out ’cause then I’d have to start again. Once it was placed inside
and somewhat held by the glue I flipped it around so that
the lining was facing me. I used this pointy tailor’s awl to push any fabric on the lining side that was still hanging
out inside the frame. Then I got my glue and I carefully put a little bit more along the inside on the side of the lining fabric. Now, the purse frame kit that
I got came with this stuff. It’s thick paper that’s been rolled into a flexible tube almost like string but it’s made of paper. I don’t know what it’s called ’cause I don’t speak Japanese and I’m not sure if all purse frame kits would come with this, so I
wanted to show it in detail. What it does is it helps add some bulk into the top of the frame which helps keep the fabric in
place because the fabric for the bag is thinner then
the width of the frame. Basically stops it from falling out. So using the tailor’s awl I carefully pushed this papery stuff
into the purse frame on the lining side all
the way around the frame. And then I clipped it to the
same length as the frame. Once that was done I let it dry for a couple of hours before repeating these same steps on the back of the bag and the other side of the purse frame. (upbeat music) I then let the whole thing
dry for a full 24 hours just to be safe and then
I attached the chain strap to the two holes on the purse frame. And with that I was done so, how did I go? (upbeat music) I love my new purse. I’ve been using it pretty much every day for the past
week since I made it. And it’s been holding up very well. Ever since I saw this fabric in Yuzawaya I was determined to use it for something and I still have all of this left over. So, I think I’m gonna try and make myself a reversible tote bag as well. So although I didn’t try and
copy the Lazy Oaf bag entirely I think that a bag of this style certainly doesn’t need to be bought. Especially not from an
expensive store with a… Especially not from an expensive store with a we avoid rating. And it can easily be made by yourself. This project is actually
really good for beginners. If you’re either new
to sewing or bag making it is a project that won’t bamboozle you by getting to flip the bag outside through the gap in the lining
like most bag projects do. It’s also a super quick project, excluding the drying time, this probably like the hands-on part took
me about 90 minutes to do. So, it would be an ideal
item to give as a gift or to sell at markets or on
Etsy or things like that. Because you spend a
relatively low amount of time and materials on it but, the
end product looks very profess. This video is sponsored by
this beautiful machine here the Bernina’s B 335. So in my last video I talked at length about the amazing
features of this machine. This video I’m actually
gonna show them to you. Oh, I’m sorry Bernina. I got too excited. Firstly, this machine
is super easy to thread, especially with the help
of a self-threading needle at the last step there. Without speeding the footage up this is how quick it
takes me to thread it. (upbeat music) It also runs super smoothly. Here I’m sewing a satin lining material and it just feeds through so easily. Even a finicky fabric like this feels like pure simple
cotton on this machine. It is also really quiet. I have no worries about
using it past midnight even though I share
walls with my neighbors because it is so super quiet compared to other machines I’ve used. It has an inbuilt alphabet function so I can attach little handmade tags to the things that I make saying my name and the year it was made. I started doing this on clothing items that I’m really proud of. I think it’d be really cool if someone found this in a thrift store one day and they can be like hey, this is the name of the person who made this and the year. I also put them on presents
that I make for people to give them that extra
special personalized touch. The B 335 also have over
100 decorative stitches which helps add an individual flare to projects and fabrics. I used some of the stitches to decorate the front of this top that I made and wore for the advertisement I did with Bernina. It’s also got this really
great sewing table attachment. It adds a lot of room to my
workspace here while I’m sewing. While it’s also compact enough that it isn’t taking up a lot of space and being an eyesore in this tiny Japanese apartment we’re
currently living in. And here’s a super gnarly
feature that I love. When the bobbin runs
out, if I have a project currently going on top of the machine I don’t have to pull the project off to change the bobbin like a
lot of top loading bobbins and I don’t have to move the table either. The project can stay in place while I open up the bobbin case and look at the bobbin from through here, wind it, which is really
quick on this machine, and then put it back in ready to go. It’s also just the most reliable sewing machine I’ve ever used. Granted I’ve only been using
it for about six months now but I have not yet had
any problems with it and what I know of Bernina’s is that they’re used in schools,
they’re used in hospitals. They are built to be sturdy and to last but also run really smoothly. If you want to see the video advertisement I made for Bernina, I’ll
pop the link down below. And thank you to everyone
who has been sending me photos of posters of my
face at the Bernina stores or photos they see of me in magazines. It’s been a super absurd and really, really cool experience
working with Bernina. My mom is making the
Bernina Australia people send her like a life-size
poster of my face. I am not quite sure what
she’s gonna do with it. I think that she thinks
I’m super famous now. It’s really sweet though. Thank you so much to Bernina
for sponsoring this video. Thank you all so much for watching. Stay crafty and I’ll see
you all in my next video. Bye for now. Thank you so much to the

    I have made a similar bag once, I used a square one with a square snap. The closure I used has holes on the underside so once you have the bag compete you sew it to the snap.
    The chain I used looks like the same as yours, mine kept snagging on my clothing and skin and hair so I ended up removing the chain. I have yet to buy a good cord (like for curtains or something) to replace the chain, but once I've done that I can use the bag again. 🙂

    I have perhaps a stupid question when it comes to projects with linings like this. Why do you not sew the lining to the outer fabric while it is flat? Why do you wait to sew them together until you’ve made the (bag) shape??

    The Japanese literally just says 'paper string'. Haha. Also I always wondered how you were supposed to attach the bag to the clasp part. /Also man I wish I could afford to spend a month of my salary on a sewing machine.

    Just a tip: The Google Translate instant translation usually sucks for sentences, it's better for single words. Disable it and use the camera to take a picture and select the text. I just did it and it says:
    "If you want to thin the paper string, unfold and cut the paper string and put it back"

    I'm not speaking for Lazy Oaf (I have no idea what it is like as a brand), but from what I have seen, Good on You is about 4 years out of date for a lot of shops. Shops like Everlane which are extremely ethical and go as far as listing factories they use on their website are rated as "not good enough" on the Good on You app (and says it has not been updated in a few years). I'm not saying stop using it at all, but just that it might not be the most up to date app any more 🙂

    TLDR: Good on You isn't necessarily the most accurate app anymore

    I gotta say I honestly kinda love that you're sponsored by Bernina? I always feel a little bit self-conscious that I have a machine that seems more high-end than any of my sewing friends' machines. I'd never even heard of Bernina outside of my own and my grandma's machines because no one talked about anything other than Singer, Brother, and super cheap beginner ones from, like, Walmart. So it's almost like you're normalizing Bernina for me? If that makes any sense at all lol.

    Ohhh, I've always wondered how bags with those clasps are made! I think I would just be lazy and decorate a plain bag with some iron-on transfers or paint for the clourds/flowers, and glue/sew on a fringe.

    That is one sexy sewing machine. One day I would like to get into sewing, especially after I saw how many damn cute fabrics are in Spotlight. Trying to choose the right sewing machine is a headache, since there isn't exactly a Buzzfeed quiz or anything to help you figure out which one is the best for your needs and whether it's okay to start with a $99 sewing machine (Aldi has a special at the moment), or if they're trash and you're better off spending a little more on something more reliable and advanced. Those Berninas are some expensive machines!

    I want to thank you. I just realized I’ve been watching your channel for years and I recently started working at a sewing studio!!!!! I am self taught and definitely learned A LOT from you. I am have no trouble while working here. It is not my only job so I don’t get to spend as much time as I would like there but I’m so thankful to you and everyone else that made me really want to do this.❤️ ps. You’re so pretty!

    At the same time, I'm like "How can one be sure that materials are from ethical sources?", but it's still so much fun to see you do creative stuff and it does inspire me to sew more myself soooo.

    I love this! I really liked the longer, weightier-looking fringe on the original though… if/when I make this, I may opt for a beaded fringe, which I've done before. I'll be sure to post a pic!

    I saved up a bunch of your videos for a day I don't feel good since they are so relaxing and interesting. I'm having an awful multicellular colitis flare today so I'm going to hang out watching your vids. Thank you for making my bad day a little brighter ❤️

    Okay, this is a complex project but I really love Yohji Yamamoto. The issue? It's expensive as heck and I have no money (I read your comment that youtube can mark links as spam so I added a space):
