A few important things to mention before getting crafty:
1) I'm done with my primary job because 2) I move out in less than 2 weeks! Afterward, I'll briefly sojourn in the midwest to catch up with family. It's not a coincidence that my visit in the heartland will overlap with the Missoni launch at Target... no way I'm waiting overnight outside the Target in Brooklyn.
Here are two ways you can be a quick-purse-change-artist. First: tassels.
1. I used my X-acto knife to cut scrap leather into thin strips a few inches long. Having a metal ruler and cutting map helped.
On to project number two!
I pinned the chain inside the clutch lining, and turned it into a cross-body bag. I still can't remember why I bought that chain. This is driving me crazy.
