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.
