Yes it can!
|This is my favorite bag. I got it during a very important period of my life, so I want to keep it forever and use it as much as possible. I love that I can wear it as a shoulder bag and as a backpack too.|
|So I was devastated when the back straps broke ;( I took it to a leather repair shop (doesn't it seem like all my stuff is braking lately? Hm...) Anyway, they said that repairing it would cost me $50. Fifty bucks for two buckles!|
|I walked home thinking about how to solve the issue myself. It was kind of chilly out, so I was wearing a fun scar I got from the warmest of librarians, who I met during my trip to Albany.|
I got home and used my non-existing knot-tying experience to create this.
|Then I smiled my BIGGEST smile. I thought about the $50 I saved and how much fun I had doing it. Not only that, but I have a bag as colorful and Eclectic as my witchy self. I'm loving it!|
I'm convinced, the recession did indeed make me a big crafty, but my craftiness doesn't work on blogger because I still suck at loading pictures.
Have you made due with what you have because you refuse to spend unnecessary money?
