Hey everyone ^^
I know that I posted a handbag tutorial last month, so it's kind of soon to be posting one so quickly. Nonetheless, I hope that someone enjoys it :) This tutorial is actually extremely short, as it was very easy to do.
|I saw this handbag on Tumblr and thought to try emulating the style. BTW if you guys can read the small print, I'd love to know whose blog this came from! XP|
EDIT: I saw in a recent post that The Glass Princess owns this bag ^^ Check out her post! The bag is way prettier than I'm allowing it to look on MY post, so that mine doesn't look awful in comparison X)
You will need:
- At least 2 different colors of lace trim
- A round handbag
- Floral pieces
- Pretty material (to make a bow)
- 1/4" ribbon
For the first step, I used pink lace trim to make an "outline" of the heart shape that I'm pursuing. This was kind of difficult T_T
Next, I used a white lace trim to outline the inside shape of the heart, thus making it look a bit more refined in shape.
Cut a piece of material to be used as a bow. Size is relative to the size of your bag.
The previous shot didn't capture the sparkle on the fabric as much as I'd have liked, so I'm including this one as well ><
Attach your bow to the center of the purse.
Use floral pieces to fill in the remaining empty space and as a centerpiece for the bow.
That's all ^^ not much detail in this post, but I wasn't sure how to be more specific X) I felt like it was so self-explanatory. My end result really doesn't have anything in common with the original with the exception of the shape. ><
|My purse collection is starting to look like a decoration!! @_@|
