changing the form : from a handbag to a ............












i havn't posted for quite a while now..... been too busy.....and this is my first post of the year too.. :)
I changed an old handbag of mine into a..will i say a purse.....cos its not definately a clutch.......lets just keep it as something flat...........which was what i was aiming for.... i have never done it before, so i tried it, i love experimenting on new things..in terms of anything that's got to do with fashion
     it took me lots of time cos.....i needed to sew it...i got no sewing machine,i sew well with my hand but it was so slow cos the bag was leather........and sewing leather is like sewing a piece of.............metal..... : D not quite........but it made my fingers pain....
 so in case any one of you got bored of using this certain handbag and wanted something new...you could change it.,......here are the steps
 
 ~ first remove the handle of the bag
 ~then....... there are usually these clothes in the bag...were you have the side pockets and so........pull it out from the bag and cut it (not completely out of the bag....jst the place were its sewed) .. so you can get access to the bottom of the bag
 ~ start losening the thread off the bottom of the bag.........that's from the inner part of the bag..
 ~ then completely remove the bottom off the bag...
 ~ you wanna make the bag more or sort of harder or structured...(that's the right word)
    So you add hard papers or anything hard and flat ..on the sides.....on both two sides
     and then just glue the end with some hard glue.....to prevent the paper from shifting....
~ After the gluing ...turn the bag inside out.........that"s to sew the bottom back..........
~after sewing the bottom.....turn it then to the right side..........
 ~ and then the cloth you losened at first to get access of the bottom......sew it back......and then put it back in..........and that's all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
