Amongst my many purchases this past week at Marshalls (because honestly how can you not purchase a closet-full of clothing at their prices), were a dress and a laptop bag. I spent $34 on both of these items combined.
This is the dress:
Cute. But not my style and really did nothing for my body type. I didn't purchase it to wear it though.
Instead I set to work pulling it apart:
First, I removed the lovely flower arrangement. Then …
stitched a bead inside each flower.
A little hot glue and hand stitching (for reinforcement) and we have:
a funky new laptop bag, just for me.
love it, i aspire to be crafty, but i never seem to come up with great ideas like that.
How hot is that?!
It's just faux leather. I loved it though, especially the color, I just knew though that it needed a little something added to it. I air on the side of fun and quirky :).
That is awesome!!! What is the bag made of? How did you even think of that!
(BTW: stopping by from MomSpark Forum)
When dealing with the garbage collector, who spoke only Spanish, or by telephone with education officials in San Juan, I would summon an eighth-grader to serve as my interpreter.
so chic! I love a color combination. but can you really trust to hot glue when making a frequently wearable accesiore?
