DIY lace ribbon trim purse upcycled from a badly scuffed patent leather purse. The process is straightforward – only ModPodge is necessary!

This half-moon shaped purse has been with me for more than 5 years, so it’s only fair that its plain side with black patent pleather base got scuffed badly after repeated uses.

Materials:

  • Half-moon shaped purse
  • Lace ribbon trim remnant (about 1.5 yard)
  • Lace ribbon trim remnant from DIY Lace Ribbon Bib Shirt (about 0.5 yard)
  • ModPodge Gloss Lustre Finish

Process:
Starting from the outer edge, slowly adhere the lace ribbon trim on the purse with ModPodge. Alternate with the smaller lace trim for the first couple lines.

Starting from the 5th line, only use the bigger lace ribbon trim. Layer on ModPodge several times for layered sturdiness and finish. Each layer took about 30 minutes to dry.
