I bought this vintage handbag
at a thrift store and as you can see, it needs some love.
The handle tore on the one side and is almost tore on the other side. I think it would cost too much to have it restored (and where's the DIY fun in that? )
So do you crafters have any ideas for what I could do with it? I can make a new handle pretty easily, but I'm not sure what to do with the worn leather body. Has anyone used acryllic paints on leather before?
It's just too cute to let it sit in my closet!
