Revamp Your Tired, Worn-Looking Purse

Hey Lovely Peeps!  Do you have a tired, worn-looking purse but never really used?  If you do, :D do not throw it away.  Revamp it!

So here is an idea of how you can revamp your old purse and turn it into a new fashion statement on your own.

What you will need:

  • A tired, worn-looking purse

  • (a) Sequins  (b) Seed beads  (c) Crystals
  • Tweezer (for picking up beads & crystals)
  • Super glue
  • Thread Clipper (for snipping thread)
  • Threads
  • Ribbon
  • Needle


1.  Carefully stitch the ribbon on both sides (a & b) of the purse strap.
       This is a picture of the purse 
       strap before I started to add
       the ribbon.

2.  Sketch out idea
3.  Trace the design on the purse
4.  Sew the outline of beads around the edge of the design.  Next, sew the silver
     sequins inside the outline, eventually filling in the whole design.  Alternatively, 
     you can use pre-made applique that can be found at any craft store.
5.  Use glue to stick and place the crystals anywhere you desire it to be.

Voila! Now your old purse has been revamped and ready to ROCK the world.
