Hello lovely people, in today's post I am going to share with you my new trick for a DIY handbag dust bag, and share a few tips on how to keep your bags looking nice along the way.
First of all you want to clear out your bag, check all the pockets and make sure it is completely empty.
Next give your bag a wipe down, how you do this depends on the type of bag you are cleaning. For example this little leather bag, I will use a slightly damp cloth on the outside to get rid of any dirt, and then follow up with some leather conditioner, a little goes a long way.
Next stuff your bag to maintain its shape and prevent it from getting squashed. I used newspaper in this example, but you can also use tissue paper or even an old t-shirt.
Tuck any shoulder straps to keep them safe during storage.
For the DIY dust bag you will want a piece of square fabric, I find that those scarf wraps from Lush are ideal, however you can use anything you fancy. Place the bag in the middle…
...Knot together two corners of the same side, making sure to leave a little gap once knotted…
Take 1 of the 2 unknotted corners and thread it through the loop you have just made previously.
Tie the remaining corner to the threaded corner and fasten into a bow.
Your dust bag is now complete! And should look something like this...
If your bag has a short handle, you can leave this poking out to make locating the bag easier.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, leave any requests in the comments below! I would love to know if you decide to try this for yourself!
