I spotted this incredible Stella McCartney bag on line. And since I didn't have $866.00 cash laying around to dish out (clearance price) I decided to DIY it.
I purchased a boho type crochet bag at the thrift store for $1.50 and went off in search of chain and supplies. I found new chain in my Dad's garage and was gifted some yarn. So are you still with me? This is being done for $1.50
I cut off the original handles and took out the draw string. Then I found a box the purse would snugly fit over and started pinning the chain to the sides. I would pin a few inches then sew with yarn. I went up over and down keeping the chain all one length. Then I reversed and sewed the other side of the chain.
I truly love it and the only thing I would change is buying some vinyl lacing instead of yard. I might yet do that. Well, I probably won't but should.
Soooooo, what do you think?
So get your creative juices going and see what you can upstyle
