A shaved bag!

This is a foldover leather crossbody bag a friend of mine gave me years ago. I wasn't wearing it because the strap was way too short for me. Maybe it was made for kids, but I liked the details,so I made some small changes.

I just chopped all the fringes and the strap, sewed a loop from the leftover fringe on each side to make loops for the new strap and used some strap leftovers and a buckle from other bags I had ......

and ended like this:

It's like a beardless man. Isn't it?

Yeah, so much this style of purse and you saved it from itself ;) Great job!
