Would you throw out a Gucci bag?
I purchased a Gucci bag from the thrift store early this year. The exterior of the bag was perfect and I paid a horribly small amount for it. Problem is – once I went to actually use it, I found the inside was ripped rendering it quite useless. Not only was it ripped but it was shredded and everytime I would reach into the bag my hand would get caught in all the shredding. ANNOYING…
I left that bag sitting around for months figuring at some point it would become a priority to repair the inside. Since that hadn’t happened yet – I moved forward with another plan.
The purse is a good size purse so I simply removed all the “guts” and turned it into a nice Gucci book bag. I was surprised to find once I removed the guts, there was cardboard lining the inside of the leather. I removed all the cardboard and now it is simply a leather bookbag – a Gucci leather bookbag!
These are “before” shots… Hopefully you will understand why I just could not part ways with it.
Now that it has been gutted – this is what it is capable of. In the end it serves a much more needed purpose. I have more purses than I could possibly ever use. I accumulate them to use as they are; to decorate and give away or to just upcycle into something else.
