IKEA Moppe’s not a beautiful piece of furniture but a very good storage gadget. I found one in the garbage room and gave it a haute makeover.
I killed my old leather coat for its skin and used a Chanel handbag as a template.
I used an old towel as the filling for the “Chanel” quilt.
I cut a piece of cardboard into the size of the front panel of the Moppe and drew the Chanel grid on it as a template.
Then I sewed a piece of leather and the towel together along the grid lines. Repeat for all 3 panels.
As the inside of the Chanel handbag is red, I painted the insides of the MOPPE red and the exterior black. I needed 3 coats for complete coverage. Let dry.
I measured and inserted eyelets in the right places.
For the Chanel logo I used Cernit clay. Shaped and sprayed gold.
I stuck the leather panels on the MOPPE using a glue gun.
Lastly I added a flat chain into the eyelets.
And the Chanel MOPPE is complete!
