how to repair a bag
how to repair a bag

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.

Ja sam najveci fan jednostavnih DIY-eva tako da cu ovaj svakako nekad upotrijebiti!
P.S. Zapravo vec imam na umu torbu koja je dugo nepravedno zapostavljena :)

I love DIY posts, I have been so busy lately that I have not done any either, this inspired me I need to get it done.
Also you mentioned you are working on a some designs, do you mean clothing as well? Cause I know you are a web designer I didn’t know you venture into clothing too! You are awesome!

Ty everyone, love reading your thoughts! Simple solutions are often the best ones :)

@melissa: I am a textile and clothing designer first and foremost, will be getting my BA soon. It was the other way round – I actually ventured into web and graphic design haha :)
The reason you haven’t seen my work is that I’m working on my portfolio and I want it to be perfect before I publish anything online. You can see my Deconstructed dress I did last year for a school project though! x
