I bought a cute Orange purse 2 1/2 months ago and the straps are already tearing apart. I finally found time today to be able to mend it because I really like the purse and want to continue using it without worrying about it breaking on me while I am out.
Here is how my strap looked before:
I started on one side of the tear and stitched to the other 🙂
Then to cover up the stitches and make it look purty again. I gathered a variety of black and orange-red buttons to stitch over the black thread.
I placed 2 orange-red buttons on each side
Then a bigger black button in the center. and there you have it a mended purse strap with a pretty result.
