My “Phillip Lim” Tassel Makeover

Pashli Large Zip Tote Bag

I am kind of dying right now at my “Phillip Lim” tassel makeover! Since I am a thrifty/crafty person, I am not one to spend a ton of money on handbags (I would say this goes for pretty much everything!). When I saw the below Phillip Lim bag, my heart skipped a beat. When I saw the price tag, my heart almost STOPPED!!!

Recovering from my near heart attack, I was on a mission to find something similar to the Phillip Lim handbag, but for a fraction of the price.  Here we have a bag that looks pretty close to the Phillip Lim bag, but only costs $27.00! I got this little gem from Sammy Dress. They literally have HUNDREDS of handbags! The styles they have are super trendy and look like versions of your favorite designer handbags, but for the fraction of the price!

Anatomy of my Sammy Dress purse:

– It has 4 zippers on the 4 edges of the purse

– You can unzip all 4 zippers to expand the bag to fit all of your goodies, or you can zip all of the zippers to give it more of a box shape (Love this!).

– There is a lined pouch that snaps into the inside of the bag, providing additional storage space.

– There is another zippered pocket sewn into the side of the bag.

– The center pouch is removable. So, you could also use it as a clutch! YAY!!

– This bag is super durable and keeps its shape well. – You basically get three purses in one, which means you are spending $9.00 a purse. You can’t beat that! Leather Tassel :: #happinessiscreatingLeather Tassel :: #happinessiscreating To Springify my purse, I decided to add a pretty blue leather tassel. Supplies: – Leather Scraps – Paint – Paint Brush – Scissors – Glue {Step 1}:  Cut 4 pieces of leather that are 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Cover all of your leather strips with paint. {Step 2}: Cut 1/4 inch slits in your leather, stopping when you get 1/2 inch from the end of your leather. Cut 4 strips of leather that are 1/4 inch wide and 3 1/2 inches long. {Step 3}: Fold one of the strips you cut in half. Put glue on the top part of your leather strip. Lay your cut piece of leather on the upper left hand side. {Step 4}: Begin rolling your cut piece of leather over your strip, forming your tassel. {Step 5}: Open the jump ring on your purse. Slide your zipper off and your tassel on. Close the jump ring.Leather Tassel :: #happinessiscreating   Leather Tassel :: #happinessiscreating Leather Tassel :: #happinessiscreating Leather Tassel :: #happinessiscreating
