DIY Vinyl Art for Bags & Purses

Posted on

I’m not a big purse person, never have been, and I don’t care to have decorated ones as a result. The idea of customizing one though? Sign me up!

This idea comes from the folks at StudioDIY, and is all about making a custom donut image for your round purse, but if they’re not your thing, I don’t see why you can’t apply these methods there to any purse/bag you like! You’ll want to visit the DIY page to make sure you understand the process to tweak it to your needs, but here’s the quick run down of supplies required for this project.

It involves lots of spray adhesive to get everything together, so you’ll want to make sure you’re in a well ventilated space or outdoors so fumes don’t become over powering. I’m not sure if this would work on fabric, but I think it would since it’s mostly the adhesive keeping things in place. So if you’ll excuse me, I have a blank to tote to customize.

How about this for a fun turn of phrase? 😀 Moscow-based indie boutique Krukrustudio is known for their wide collection of bags, which resemble cute trinkets or unique memorabilia. Including *dramatic pause* messenger bags that look like books!

Krukrustudio’s pieces have transformed classic literature novels and pop culture icons into an elaborate purse design. The bags are constructed from 100% woolen Spanish felt that is both light weight and durable. The side is lined with cotton and includes one pocket, but they do allow customization so if you want more pockets don’t be afraid to send them an ask. ^_^ To see more of her lovely transformation designs just hop on over to her etsy shop here.

This is to be one of those rare post topics for me, as anyone who knows me can tell you how little I normally care about this subject but….I swear these are some of the cutest hand purses! 😀

Strawberry Paisly is an etsy shop filled with lots of cute things, but it was the hand purses/coin pouches that caught my eye. Everything about them is just wonderfully designed as they are very bright and eye catching while still remaining simplistic. The soot sprite based one are without a doubt my favorite, but the design work on Totoro is also just lovely.

All of her work is priced very affordable so if you’re in the market for a new casual coin purse you should definitely check it out. ^_^
