You know when you buy more expensive make up and you get those little free gift bags with them? I tend to never use the bags because I don’t generally like to carry things with labels on them. So whats the solution? Craft! Craft is aaaalways the solution XD
- Glue gun or sewing machine
- Clutch bag
This bag came in my MBBE goodie bags and is from Guinot. It’s black with little glitter sparklies ^_^ I am not a fan of clutch bags, I think they are kind of pointless… I mean they don’t make carrying stuff any easier they just give me a hand cramp XD So glue time!
So in about 10 minutes I turned it into this:
I started with the white bow that came off one of my Bodyline shoes and added some black velvet ribbon to hide the thread.
Then I glued lace around the outside. Of course you could stitch it in place but this bag is quite thick so glue was easier.
I pleated the lace at the corners so it sat well.
Glued the little bow in place…
Then with some more velvet ribbon I added a little strap by gluing (and anchoring with a stitch) it into the inside.
Super easy! All done!
Now I have a cute evening bag which is practical and matches my outfit ^_^ Win! What do you guys do with these kinds of bags?
