I am in the market for a wristlet that can actually hold more than 3 quarters, and a stick of gum so I snipped off the handle, and all it's findings, and got to work.
See. All clear.
Then I re-attached the clasp to the zipper.
Then I threaded the handle through the clasp and tied a knot big enough for my wrist to fit comfortably. I snipped off any extra.
Tie the knot!
The purse had these metal bendy things as decoration, so I bent them back around the end of the snipped edges to create a finished look.
My Grandma gave me these rad gold and white vintage buttons. I thought they would be perfect to add a little flair to this navy beauty.
I started hand sewing them on.
My Favorite one!
I think it looks much better. Whadya think?
