Description

I want to make my bike pretty, and without spending too much! I made this ordinary handbag into a practical and stylish handlebar-handbag so that I can carry things like a water bottle on my bike and access them at traffic light stops.

I took the buckles and webbing off another bag I wasn’t using and applied them to this bag. It has given me an idea for my final collection at university, but I’ll keep you guessing on that one for now! :)

My error is that I put the buckles on upside down, which I think effects how the bag hangs.
