Waxed tote and ipad mini case

I always wanted to wax coat my creation to make it water resistant.
I love the way scratches make white lines on the surface.

I have patched my scrap fabrics together and made this simple tote.

The wax coating makes it look so rustic!  Love it!!

I have used this beautiful purple kimono fabric inside.
I have fused on the quality Japanese interfacing to make it stronger.

This is another waxed item I have made.
It is an ipad mini case!

Look how water resistant it is!

I have used beeswax + linseed oil conbination, 
as I read that it is the most traditional way to make fabrics water resistant.
The end product smells of a sweet honey!

You can see them on my Etsy shop!
