I have started to alter the bag I got from the carboot on Monday. I couldn’t believe it when I found that the straps actually come off, making working on them so much easier, how brilliant is that?
I had a look in my ribbon box and found this red polka dot grosgrain ribbon which is just perfect. I have glued it onto the bag with heavy duty PVA, turning over the ends so they don’t fray. I know I could have sewn on the ribbon, but that’s not my style, too slow! And as this bag is a bit of fun, I am not planning on its longevity or durability!
I was going to get a set of Accessorize pin badges (£3 for 4) to embellish it until Lisa pointed out that I could make my own ….doh, I’d forgotten about my badge maker,…… so that’s my next job!
