DIY Bohemain Tassel Purse

I’ve had this cute bohemian satchel for awhile now, and since the whole tassel fringe trend has taken over, I knew I could give this well loved purse a makeover!

I added some, DIY fringe, upholstery tassels, tiny dingle ball trim and one of my DIY Rope Tassels. The old girl was a little worn out from tons of use, but now with her new groovy facelift, she is fabulous!!! I love it!!! Here’s what I did~

DIY T-shirt Fringe trim Jersy knit

Cut the t-shirt across the center with sharp scissors. Do not cut ends off yet. Take the center piece of t-shirt and fold in half. Cut long 5 to 6 inch strips into the fabric to make the fringe.

Unfold and cut one end open so you have one long strip of fringe. Fold the fabric over at the top of the fringe and hot glue it down so you have a neat edged hem.

Hot glue Tshirt fringe to purse

Fold the fabric over at the top of the fringe and hot glue it down so you have a neat edged hem.

DIY Boho Handbag

Add the fringe to the purse edges with hot fabric glue and gun. I added another strip of the left over fringe to the bottom of the purse. Add your tassel fringe to the front edge of the purse and then two strips down the front with the hot glue.

**You may need to work with the look of the purse you are using to place your accents. Add the orange trim to the top edge of the purse with hot glue.

Clip a rope tassel to the back of the button on the front closure. Trim the fringe on the bottom of the purse and that’s it!! Love, love, love it! I can’t wait to wear this on vacation this year! I hope you liked this post! If so Please Tweet it!

    I love this bag!! Would you consider making me one? I’d be happy to buy one it and I’ve never done this before. But it’s so adorable!
    Thx, Diane

    1. Hi Diane,
      At this time I am not making these to sell. It is something I have considered, but not at this time. If I do they will be in an Esty store. So watch for that. Thanks so much for loving my bag and stopping by.

  2. What a cool purse! Thanks for sharing at our Link it Or Lump it party.
