Embellishing Ideas for Handbags

Otherwise known as “Kat Tricks”!

The ideas listed below involve techniques that I have actually used on several of the bags you see on this website. The best part about these techniques is that nothing has to be perfect, in order for the final result to look FANTASTIC! Cut pieces don’t have to be symmetrical, and the angles don’t have to all be the same.

Or, if you’d rather work with pattern pieces, our new e Book, RockStar Peacework may be just what you’ve been waiting for. It’s loaded with killer content that show you how to incorporate creativity into your everyday style! Click here for more information aboutRockStar Peacework.
