DIY CELINE INSPIRED TRIO BAG
22nd January 2013
3 small zipped pouches. Mine were simple suede ones I picked up for a steal.
6 snap buttons
Thread matching the colour of your bag
A length of flat gold curb chain
A strap of some sort, either off the pouches themselves or handmade out of similar material.
Optional tools include beading plyers and a multi hole punch (I didn’t end up using them).
Not wanting to completely replicate the Celine version, I created a gold chain strap which I think worked quite well, feel free to experiment with the type of strap you use!
1. If your bag has long straps (or little hand straps like mine did), remove them.
2. Lay out the buttons where you think you will place them – try to put them close to the top and side edge of the bag but not so they are too obvious. You can mark the bag with chalk if you like.
3. Using your needle and thread, sew the buttons on.
5. Do this for each bag so the three snap together. The one in the middle with have button on each side. Press all the buttons together to create your bag.
6. Sew your strap onto the chain.
7. Do that for both ends.
8. Finally, sew the straps onto the sides of the centre pouch.
