Unique Idea to transform and refurbish a plain handbag

I hope you are having a great weekend. I had a long weekend and there was enough time to meet work deadlines as well as my college assignments during these off days. In my today’s blog post, I am sharing a unique idea to transform and refurbish a plain ladies handbag into something colorful. I decided to embellish this handbag because it was very simple. As you know I am a hoarder, I collect things to craft and design them later but sometimes they remain lying in my craft stash for long. Well, I bought it few months back from a local store just because I wanted to experiment with it by embellishing somehow.  I have also bought a plain tote bag recently which I will design soon. Anyways!! have a look at my recent DIY Idea to embellish a plain handbag with fabric paints and embroidery patch.

So have a look at the tutorial of turning a plain handbag into colorful with fabric paints. There are many ideas to design it but this is one quick yet creative way to embellish a handbag. Mostly I try easy DIY ideas which takes less time in making. (life is busy you know so why to spend hours in making complicated things)

Step One:

The fabric texture of the handbag was already having self printed lines on it, but you can draw lines with a scale. Then with the help of a paint brush, I painted dots, lines and zig zags. It’s super simple and anyone can do it, even better than me :)

These are the colors I have used here in the painting of this handbag. I used very thin brush tip.

Step 2: tarted it with black fabric paint and then gradually fill other colors in the design.

I wanted to give it a patch look by painting and I think it actually looks like a patch now! Isn’t it?

Step 3: With the help of an iron I pasted the embroidery patch on the handbag. It was looking well on the middle of handbag front. Also, with hot glue gun I fix the ribbon on the silver buckle because it was a bit rusty and not looking  well.
