A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a second-hand leather bag that I bought for R5($0.13) at a flea market. I was shocked when the seller told me the price, so that is not what drew me to it. I really liked the colour and patches. It’s not a perfect bag, but I think it has character. I was thinking of a way to spice the bag up and came up with the idea of turning it into a chain bag. They’re extremely trendy right now and I have been meaning to buy myself one. Here’s how I did it:
1. Take bag that has loops for a strap attachment.
4. Attach chain to bag. To do this I opened up the last loops of chain, attached it to the bag’s loops and then hit it closed with a hammer. You could also buy some kind of fastener for a more elegant solution.
And there you have it. I think the chain transformed this little bag into something current and it’s also a cheaper alternative to buying a new chain bag.
Have you done any DIY lately?
