Things you need for this DIY:
✝ leather (mine was vegan)
✝ a pencil
✝ a ruler
✝ glue (I used epoxy but I bet hot glue would be much faster)
✝ nail polish
✝ snaps, gold paint (optional)
$5 for one yard of faux leather
For those of you who read my old blog, you know that this DIY is WAY overdue.
First, cut your piece of leather to 12.25"X30". Then, using the ruler, section the piece of leather with the dimensions above.
Note: If this is too tricky, grab a paper gift bag, take it apart and use it like a cheat sheet.
Fold the piece of leather so that the 2" section over laps the first two inches of the 9" section, making an inside-out loop.
Turn right-side out. Then using the lines as a guide, fold the bottom of the bag like it's a Christmas present.
I added snaps on the sides to help it keep it's shape, but it's not necessary.
I used the nail polish to finish the edge...hot pink...cause why not...
I wanted my bag to be a little shiny so I rubbed some gold paint on it with a paper towel. Again, totally optional.
