Proud Moment: Ugly Turn Pretty

A quick post from me featuring a really quick DIY.

You know how irritating it is when PVC start falling into pieces, turning what was once a lovely piece of item into a mess.

Yeap that’s what happen to The Bodyshop bag. The PVC coated handle started falling apart quite some time back and I just don’t know what to do with it. I just tape the handle with clear cellophane tape, like the picture below:

The tape didn’t cost me much (RM4.90 from Isetan if you are wondering) and if the handle is way beyond repair, i’ll just throw it away even though the bag itself is still pretty good condition.

And I got lucky because the fabric tape works really well and adds a bit of a colour to an otherwise dull colour.

Here’s the finished product.

Have you done anything like this lately?

    Great job! Personally I get irritated when the flakes of PVC decided to shed. I have also seen those fabric deco tapes in Daiso too. Tempted to purchase them, just because they looked pretty but didn’t know what to do with them :P

    Thanks! I don’t think I have seen those fabric tapes in Daiso, so I think I’ll have to look harder!
