I love finding deals and steals on things that are almost great.  These kinds of buys make the perfect DIY projects and a little effort can go along way.

Please see exhibit one: this navy handbag was a $6.00 Primark find after I broke the zipper on a previous crossover bag.  It was fine, but not really noteworthy.


Using some multi-surface craft paint and a steady hand, I  added this funky line detail with a small brush and upped its wow factor.


If you’re looking for inspiration for patterns to use, use google images or Pinterest and search for fabric patterns.  Its a great way to find a simple and visually exciting pattern ideas for an use.



It’s the perfect addition to a color neutral outfit that the plain navy bag just didn’t offer.


Any discount product store will have similar bags too! Find a style that suits you and then jazz it up – it turns into a whole new piece that’s one of a kind.
