How To Make A Photo Bag Out Of All Your Baggage
It’s time to let your creative juices start flowing once more. If craft making has been your passion, you’ll no doubt find delight in creating unique and fun photo bags out of the old bags that you’ve owned, bags which are so out of fashion already that not even your grandmother thinks they’re remotely stylish. Turning them into a trendy photo bag will definitely give life to those beloved possessions of yours. Shoulder Bags – There are two primary types of shoulder bags: those with short straps and those with long ones. While short strapped shoulder bags are still great to use anytime and anywhere, long-strapped shoulder bags are already passé. It’s the latter that badly need the resuscitation that photo bag projects offer.
To give these bags a new lease on life, choose an artwork that is eye-catching and symbolizes who you are. Make sure that the artwork matches the color of your shoulder bag. Once you’ve selected the appropriate artwork, cover it with plastic to protect it from dust. Use embellishments that can endure hand or machine washing to serve as its border. Lastly, sew the photo on the front of the bag using whichever type of stitch that appeals to you the most.
Traveling Luggage – Suitcases and the likes would not only become more attractive when they’re turned into photo bags but become more easily identifiable as well. Traveling luggage is one of the things that people most commonly lose when transferring from one place to another. Turning it into a photo bag will make identification of lost luggage absolutely easier. As such, whoever finds your luggage only has to see the photo you’ve attached to your bag to know that you’re the rightful owner. Thus, it’s important that you use your own photo – make sure that it’s your most beautiful shot as well – for your traveling luggage. Handbags – Handbags come in different shapes and sizes. They also come in different colors and textures. If your handbag makes use of hard casing, you can follow the tips provided earlier on for creating photo decoration for your bag. Instead of stitching it to the bag, however, you should use double back tape to permanently attach your photo to the bag. For handbags made of plain fabric material, you can use another fabric to serve as background for your photo.
Cover the whole thing with plastic before sewing it to the front of your bag. Backpacks – This type of bag’s tricky to transform into a photo bag because most backpacks are subjected to a lot of wear and tear. As such it’s very possible that whatever photo decoration you attach will tear off sooner or later. To prevent this from happening, stick it with tape before sewing it to the bag’s front. Briefcases – Businessmen and individuals in other similar (serious) professions are fond of using briefcases with them. While it’s certainly smart-looking and efficient, briefcases will ultimately benefit from the decorative touch of photos. Just make sure that the photos you use won’t be an embarrassing issue for the bag owner. It’s also best to keep the photo you’ll be using as the briefcase’s design relatively small in size. Photo bags are not only stylish accessories but also serves as a means of rekindling good old memories of the past. Share your joy with your loved ones by gifting them with one of your photo bag creations!.
