We have so many pouches at work but only very few people buy them. I think the reason is that they aren't very useful. Without a strap or handle, ladies have to always carry them under their arms. Maybe for some rich girls who don't need to carry things out of stop&shop or Target, but for real normal woman that we need a hands-free bag.
Those carry all pouches are most real leather and come with so many nice colors. I always like one denim pouch which has different cities on it. I thought it is very chic. And I like a light purple leather one which they call it "Orchid". I just like the color and think it can be really feminine.
After more than a year of working there, I finally decided to get them! I can DIY them, I thought to myself. And I did!!!!
The eyelets took a little bit time for me to figure out how to put them on the bags, once I knew that it was super easy to put them on. And the chains were just as easy as pie. I could only get one set of thick chains, so I used it for the denim pouch. The thick chains give the bag more chic look and the length is just right under my arm. It was perfect. I had no choice to get a thinner chain for my leather pouch. I was worried that the chain won't be strong enough. Then, I thought why don't I add some ribbon through the chains!! The ribbon gives the thinner chain even more feminine look and the length of chains are longer (around my waist) that make the whole pouch super feminine! And best of all, if I want to use them as how they suppose to be " to be carried", I could easily pull the chains out.
I tried to do D.I.Y time to time, but failed most of the time. So, I am very happy and proud for this little project even though It is very simple.
