DIY

7.19.2010

I have completed another DIY. One that took longer than I expected and I have to admit, hurt my fingers a little...but well worth it. I took a basic drawstring bag and thought it would look great if I studded the Chanel logo on the front with studs I purchased from New York Design Shop. I love the end result! Don't mean to toot my own horn but...TOOT TOOT!

That is awesome! I love how the bag matches your headband.
How did you make sure it was all lined up? My c's would have been so square and crooked.

You made a faux Chanel? I'm really the only person to find this tacky?

This is awesome. How did you get the studs on it though?

Anthea said...

Well done. That's such an awesome idea. Looks great! I love your outfit as well. The shoes and shirt are awesome!

Lena said...

@ Helena: The studs have for prongs which easily pierced into the bag and you then close them up. No tools necessary, just your fingers :)
