DIY : Purse Primping

 This purse was street shopped in a local market. It had been lying around in my closet for sometime, and I decided to give it a face lift .  It already had this pretty braid all around it, so all it needed was some painted-on Polka dots!

Materials: Brush, Acryllic/Fabric Paints in the desired shade.

It is important to note that the shade of polka dots you choose can make or break the new look of your bag. I decided to go for this dreamy, almost neon pink shade(That I got by mixing two shades)   , which has (thank heavens)  ended up looking preppy and fun!
Another colour, like perhaps red, would have looked boring and predictable.

Another tip: Choose a plain bag, with not too many embellishments or buckles.

Too many instructions?  Never mind. Just do your thing, clip on a flower or a bow, and you have your own unique DIY primped purse!

 I apologize that I haven't been replying to blog comments off late..It is unforgivable of me! But I've been so swamped(Preparing for design interviews), that the posts are just getting auto-published from my drafts...I'll be back full swing next week!
