Indian Inspired bag

I adore bags of all shapes and sizes.  If you are anything like me a decent bag at a great price is always a bargain!!

So while out shopping I saw this gem! Yes you’re right, it’s a plain black leather bag! It may not look like anything too special to begin with….…but I had some other plans for it!

So when I got home I got out my secret stash of ribbons & trimmings and started to design my bag more to my style.

I decided to go for a purple theme (my favourite colour).  Firstly I laid out the trimmings to get an idea of the look I wanted to create and then I started gluing!

Have fun be creative and glam up your tired looking bags with some ribbons and trimmings.  The trick is to not be afraid and just listen to those creative instincts.

And here’s my finished bag:

I love my colour scheme, so now instead of a plain bag I’ve got a very fashionable Indian Inspired accessory!

As you can see I decided not to cover the complete bag.  I originally thought covering the whole bag would be great, but once I started I realised it would have looked to messy and so I decided to just do the edges. I have already been out with my bag and it has received some lovely compliments 🙂 so thank you.

Go on have a go and bring some new life into your bag.

I’d love to see your re-creations of your bags.  Send me an email or leave me a comment I’d love to hear from you.

Take care.
