D.I.Y Studded Backpack

I promised this DIY long ago when I first bought the backpack, and so in my typical fashion, here it finally is, months later. In my opinion, why spend over £50 for a studded Topshop bag when I can pay only £9 for a Primark backpack and add my own personal touches? I find backpacks quite cute and less painful than carrying a heavy bag, the only problem with them is the amount of hassle they are when you are in a rush to get something out. You can see a BEFORE image of the backpack in this post. I quite like the stud trend at the moment, I think they add that extra something to an outfit, but I'm not too keen on the extremely spiky studs. The studs I used were just plain and you can buy them at any craft store and are a cheap and easy way to accessorise an outfit.



Glad to be back into the swing of blogging, even though I have a lot on at the moment like an interview on Wednesday. Wish me luck!

  9. Looks amazing, I've been looking for the perfect studded backpakc for ages, I spotted one online but couldn't justify spending over £40 on one. I may have to give this a try!
