diy Phillip Lim bag
by peep and chicken
take a granny handbag such as this. remove the drawstrings so that the bag is flat.
remove handles with an unpicker.
add a chunky zip to the top of the bag (using a leather needle on your domestic sewing machine).
cut strips of white leather and glue to the bottom of the removed handles.
once dry, secure the handles with some hand stitches using a leather needle.
glue the straps to the base and sides of the bag.
sew across where the glue ends to reinforce, et voila!
