My first DIY, how excited was I when I stumbled upon this DIY Studded Suede Purse online yesterday?!
I bought a pink purse like 4 years ago in Toi market, which I never used to use much because I found it to be too plain. But after I saw this DIY I knew metal studs would spruce it up.
My mum bought me a studded belt a few years back that got worn out. So I have been removing the studs and putting them on my clothes and anything else I can think of.
You will need a sharp metal blade to cut slits for the metal studs on the purse. I used a cutting tool that I bought with my beading kit which is really sharp.
Since I had ruined my nails doing this DIY, and I wanted to save some studs for a rainy day, I decided to add some embellishments if I may call them that. I bought them a while back at Biashara Street at some store there I forget the name, they cost 5 Kshs per bead.
After slaving away all night last night, here is the finished product, which I have just noticed is not symmetrical
I am anal about symmetry but it is no biggy, I will just change it if it becomes too much of an eye sore.
DIY is so much fun, I have always loved crafting my own things since I was a kid, so look out for more DIY posts on here 🙂
Ya’ll know I hate monotony, so it was time to switch things up and get myself a new signature:)
