From trash to Fab: Revamp old bags with denim

Hello there,

Today I was cleaning out the things I haven’t used for a while(its discomforting to say I’m a hoarder but yes I am) in a good way though I’m big on gifts and things like that moving on you do not want me started on my chronicles of gift hoarding as I call it but anyway story for another day, so back to sorting out things I pull out this bag which was given to me by a friend before she changed towns, as I said earlier I’m big on gifts so definitely I held on to the bag and I really loved it but as you know cold areas really have a way of dealing with our bags and that is exactly how my bag died :-( ,it had scratches and cracked I tried fixing with paint but it lasted only for a short while until I finally kept it aside and it skipped my mind only till about today when I found it in a pretty bad shape but I was determined to keep it which brings us to our DIY of today giving a total makeover :-)  412 more words
