Come and Get Your Money Little Duffle Bag Boy.....

24 August, 2009

As you may remember from my last post, I was deciding on what to do with and old blazer; at the end I decided to customize it with buttons, but it looks like I'm going to need over a 200 buttons, but so far I only have like 40 buttons, so I've got a long way to go.

So in the meanwhile I decided to attempt to make an Alexander Wang Coco Duffle inspired bag. I had this (very) old bag that I brought from H&M a couple of years ago, and I looked like it would do the job.

I couldn't find any conical shape studs anywhere, so I made do with some pyramid studs instead here from Ebay, and here's the result:

It was fairly easy to do, and took less than an episode of Veronica Mars to finish, but I'm thinking of redoing it and using a few more studs, I only used 23 studs and looks kind of sparse to me, and it's kind of wonky as well. But it's not bad for a first try.
