Handbag Makeover – Sad to Fab

I recently acquired a $30 voucher for a shoe store, but wasn’t in the mood for new shoes (shock horror). I opted for a handbag instead. After the $30 discount I got this handbag for only $9.95! Can you say bargain?

It is an okay handbag but I feel that’s a bit too plain but for $9.95 I couldn’t really complain. I thought this bag would be perfect for a sad to fab makeover.

First I started out with some gold bag chain and jump rings.

Using pliers open a jump ring to capture the chain.

To determine the best length of the chain I stuffed the bag with some clothes to hold it upright. Once I determined the length of the chain I used the pliers to unlink and then attach it to the jump ring on the other side.

I then attached the second chain to both jump rings.

And then a third.

I love how a few strands of chain can transform a handbag. I will most likely add some charms but for now this will do.
