DIY Project: The Lunch Bag

I remember when I was little, my sister and I used to make our own things (jewelery boxes, pencil kits, bags, etc ), It was so much fun. When I grew up I got used to ready-made everything, therefore I no longer felt the need to create or customize objects. Since the holidays began I wanted to do a DIY project, and make a come-back to this sublime world.


I chose to do my own 'Lunch bag'. This bizzare item intrigued me the moment I saw it in the runway (even more than the fuzzy shoes) the way of holding grip of it is so easygoing. What encouraged me more is finding this excellent tutorial, I only had to follow the steps and finally have in hand the IT-BAG.

New Concept In Fashion Town: BOMO

"I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it."   — Alexander McQueen

Being a tomboy since my early years, I never had the obsession to wear beautiful clothes, any sweater and a pair of jeans would be perfect for me, given that I was always on the run (I was guilty of every broken decoration piece). That's why I grew indifferent of my appearence, but always envious of my female cousines' elegancy.

When I started wearing my hijab, at 12 years old, I became aware of the difference between female and male style. I began to widen my warbrobe, including some maxi skirts, maxi dresses, jackets that covers what should not be seen. And by that, I had to mix prints, and sometimes my outfit would be a mixture of many crazy prints, I was also compelled to layer a lot, and to hunt shopping for XXL items to ensure the flowiness around my body.

I tried to wear beautiful clothes, and I think that I fighted the good fight, following from near the fashion yet adding my personal touch, and even my female cousines, that I envied long ago, complemented my outfit choices.
