DIY badge/pin Bag for a fraction of the price!

I think the badge, pin detailed bags are going to be a huge trend! They seem to be popping up everywhere. I recently bought the Bug cross body bag from Zara which you would of seen a little snap over on my Instagram. The good thing about this trend is that you can personalise with your own customisation, even if you buy a bag with badges already on like the ones below you can always add pins and badges to make the bag truly unique!

To create my own I took a trip to primark to buy a plain black bag, you can buy new or use an old bag you want to revamp! I found this one which will be perfect as the material is soft and will be easy to pin, it is also a lovely size and has added chain detail on the strap! It was also super cheap at £7, they also had a selection of pin sets, I picked up one with a little pineapple and cacti but there was plenty to choose from. You can find such a wide selection of pins and badges , I especially like to shop on depop or etsy, just search for enamel pins or embroidered patches/badges.

I have a huge collection of vintage brooches which would add a personal touch to the bag and also make it appear a lot more expensive and unique. You can even stitch on charms and add chain detail.

Its simple! Its all about arranging your brooches, badges, patches how ever you like and over time you can change them up and add more. I Thought it might be cool to hunt down some letter charms in my initials or name to add too!

Let me know what you think of the badge/pin trend and if you are going to try this DIY
