I fell in love with this denim bag at first glance! It had all the makings of everything I love; quilted pattern, gold chain, bleached denim. $15 bucks, you say?! I’ll take it! I immediately knew I would BellaGemafy this bag and share it with all of you!

See as I transform a $15 handbag into a custom $1500 bag. If this bag was a designer label or from a high-end boutique, you would be expected to pay hundreds upon thousands for a handcrafted, embellished masterpiece. Now, you can have your very own custom, sparkly, designer bag- at a fraction of the price!

For the handbag, buy any fabric or denim bag of your choice. The one in the video was purchased years ago at a store in L.A for $15 bucks. There’s endless online options, just do a Google search and BAM!

For charms, I purchased both the silver and gold embellishments (links below). I primarily used Gold/Rose gold. I created a first layer as the base of the bag and overlapped charms to give it a 3D effect. I placed the small butterflies at an angle throughout the top of certain charms to give the impression of a butterfly resting on the petals of a flower. Make sure you layout and map all the embellishments before gluing. It will leave less room for mistakes and/or a gluey mess. Be mindful of your space to maximize the beauty and sparkle of your unique handbag.

I scoured the earth to find a bag like this one since I have been asked a lot. Here’s what I found, you can try this one for the project. The embellishments can go between the frayed denim sections.
