It's been a while since my last post..Well today I was having an alone-treasure hunt moment at my room to find old book for my blogshop.  As I was searching for them, suddenly I saw this old but awesome vintage bag.  I took the bag and asked granma to give it to me (hehehe).  She was like ''what's that???!! owh okay just take it Cheesy''

I don't really know where she bought it.  But  I think she got it somewhere from Saudi Arabia a freaking looong time a go.

ok here's the bag



and I has the ugliest strap ever.  I hate it when the PU leather fell off from the strap and made like someone cracked them..

Ugly strap:



Then I got this ideas to do a very simple strap surgery.  Not so awesome but now I can use the bag.

1) I glued (using SUPER GLUE) the black vintage lace on the strap



2) Then I sewed the excess lace at the back (can u see those fine lines?)



3) Aaaand KaBAAAM! my new lovely strap  Grin



4) Also i've added metal beads as a result of major boredom.



Hope you like it  Grin Grin Grin
