DIY Leather Bag Bling

Inspired by a vintage leather satchel I spotted in Vogue's April issue, I pulled together my own evening bag version for $4.00 ($2.00 for the bag, $2.00 for the pin – resale shop finds).

To help the pin go into the leather with ease, I pierced the bag first with a hammer and nail.

Something different for an evening bag.

My inspiration.

    Very cool. I have a gray leather purse that I’ve been looking to do something with. I’ll have to try something like this
