I was browsing my own blog the other day, looking for an old post when I realized I haven’t posted any DIY projects in a really long time! Luckily, I think no one noticed, otherwise there would be questions asked. So today I decided to give you one. It’s really easy and more of a tip than a DIY, but I hope it will be useful to some.
Let’s say you’ve got a fairly old bag that you love too much to let go of. Still, it’s kind of falling apart. My bags always lack handles; due to very heavy contents I have to drag around in my bag everyday, they are the first to go. So if you’re anything like me, you sure have at least one! Here’s a quick fix I thought of the other day.
What you’ll need is a bag, a belt (a scarf, a tie, a rope – whatever you want to use as a handle) and scissors. Cut off the old handle from your bag, take the belt you’ve chosen and fasten it around the metal hoops. The same goes for a scarf – just tie it around the way you want and you’re done. You get to keep your favorite item!
This technique can also be used if you just want to change up the looks of some of your bags. You can play with it and add chains, multiple belts, transparent straps… And the best part is – you can’t screw anything up!
I have another awesome DIY coming that I think a lot of you will adore, so stay tuned! Also be sure to follow my Instagram for daily updates and details.
