A Vintage bag makeover
The front and outside of the vintage black bag. I purchased this at a local collectibles shop. Then I dumped a collections of different green and gold beads in a tray, threaded up my needle and stitched them on the outside of the bag, catching only the outside fabric. Kind of like a leaf or whatever design. I just kept adding them until I liked how they all looked. There are bugle, seed, oblongs, squares, rectangles in the collection.
I also added an initial to the inside in all gold beads.
