Make your own monogram handbag


Posted 20th Oct 2019

There's something about personalised accessories that frankly, you cannot beat.

That's why when we heard that Rust-Oleum and DIY queen, The Lovely Drawer, had created a simple tutorial for creating their own monogram wallets and handbags, we had to find out more. Whether it's for yourself, or to give to someone as a unique gift, it's a tutorial that you're guaranteed to love...

You will need:

Rust-Oleum Flexible Fabric Paint
Alphabet stencil
Masking tape
Double sided tape

Directions:

1. Cut out the letter you wish to use from the alphabet stencil. Use double sided tape to cover any detailed areas of the stencil that may lift when spraying. This will help to ensure clean lines when you spray. Peel the backing off the double sided tape and stick the stencil to the leather face up.

2. Move the wallet to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Apply masking tape all around each edge of the stencil and ensue you completely cover the remainder of the wallet to protect from spray mist.

Spray with two light layers of Rust- Oleum Flexible Fabric Paint, allowing to dry in-between.

Top tip: For the best results, hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface and spray in a steady back and forth motion.

3. Once dry, peel the stencil away from the leather and voila!
