Leather Bag Conversion - Flying Unicorn

Hi Everyone,

I am here today with you to share with you a little upcyling project. Recently my husband was super lucky to get upgraded to first class on his Emirates flight, he brought home with him a leather Bvlgari (fancy pants) toiletry bag.

Although very nice....

I wanted it to look nicer, and here is the result....

I decorated the bag with Flying Unicorn Adornments and chipboard watch pieces from Leaky Shed Studio. The beautiful shimmery paint is Lumiere by Jacquard, it went onto the leather like a dream. This then led me to look at my shoes and wonder which ones I would like to paint, dare I take to a pair of leather boots with this paint? yes I think so!!!!.  When it comes to Rub'n Buff I seriously (and I mean SERIOUSLY) cannot seem to help myself, I love that stuff and have used it here in gold to highlite my edges and embellishments. I use it on nearly everything and somehow always manage to rock a gold index finger.

Here are a few more pictures for you...

Many thanks for looking, wishing you all a brilliant and creative day.

  1. Well you must know by now that purple is my most favourite colour and I do believe that it would look a whole lot better sitting in my crafty space ... lol ... it's fabulous and you have totally rocked this project. It's absolutely awesome!

  2. I love this bag .. What an amazing hour. I have a question. I have lumiere paints. I have a liquid White. But I have a brown that is in powder form. Can I use that with water?


  3. This altered bag is STUNNING, AWESOME, FABULOUS... Oh waw... Love it. Gosh you are so talented. And very creative.
    Thank you for sharing your fabtastic art..
