DIY: Snakeskin Handbag Inspired By Jimmy, Bottega, M.Kors And All The Rest
Who doesn’t love a snakeskin bag? Clearly Halle, Jennifer (carrying Adriana Castro) and Beyonce are big fans! Well so am I, but let’s be honest that Jimmy Choo bag Beyonce is rocking cost $3,000. There’s a Michael Kors python tote that I’m crushing on for Fall, but it’s gonna run around $2,200. Of course you can find them for cheaper, but why buy when you can DIY. This project is cheaper (around $20) and since were using faux snakeskin, a better alternative for our reptile friends.
You can use any kind of vinyl fabric. If you’re not into prints or can’t get your hands on any, your fabric store should carry vinyl in an array of colors. Check out the selection snake print vinyl my fabric store had. I can make this bag in every color (and I probably will)!
Use eyelets to secure the holes. You can pick up an eyelet kit form your local fabric store. My kit cost $3.45 and it came with all the tools and loads of extra eyelets. It’s a very easy process. Just read the directions that come with the kit. If you can get your hands on a kit then you can just create holes in your bag and run the chain through.
