Remember the bag in last week’s outfit post? Well, months and months (ie., about a year) ago, I spotted this adorable Dolce & Gabbana bag on net-a-porter. What a delight! Then I saw the price tag. Hardly delightful coming in at a cool three grand. So, in the infamous words of my mother I said, “I can make that.” And that I did. It took me a while to go about gathering up all of my supplies, but last week, I finally complete my mission and I am not one to boast, but I think it turned out pretty amazing… dare I say even better? I love mine more than Dolce’s (sorry, Stefano) because it’s personalized with my own charms and oh yeah, it didn’t cost $3,000.
What you need:
I recommend a bag that is not particularly thick so as to be able to stitch through it with limited cursing.
Thread, needle, scissors, needle threader
Charms and pins
What you do:
Thread the needle.
Attach charms one by one.
Continue attaching charms in pins until you end up with…
And you may end up with a few pricks (no more than your average Friday night out), but the pay off is well worth the work. La dolce vita!
