DIY – Vintage lace purse

diy vintage lace bag mod podge

Do you remember the brown leather purses I found in the thrift store? I posted them last week in ‘Latest thrift store finds’. I really love these little purses. I don’t care that they are scratched and torn. It all adds up to the vintage feel. I love bags with character! But I thought I could make them even a little more special. I really wanted to keep the vintage feel, but I wanted to make the bag more unique. What did I do to make that work? I used lace! And some Mod Podge of course..

How to make a fabulous vintage lace purse

First you have to decide which part of the bag should be covered in lace. Cut the lace a little bigger then that area, you will cut off the excess lace later on. Use the brush to put the Mod Podge on the bag. Put the lace on top of the Mod Podge and at another layer of Mod Podge to secure the lace. Let the Mod Podge dry. If you are not really patient, like me, you can use a blow dryer to speed up the drying process. Cut the lace in the right shape. To make the edges of the lace stay in place I used a little bit of fabric glue. This way you know for sure (well almost for sure) that this bag will stay just as beautiful as the day you made it.
