    I bought a super cheap purse off of eBay so I could personalize it. I was stumped on what to do for the strap. I was going to sew a new one but then I found this video! Saved me time and money. Thanks for the idea!

    This is such a great idea. I accidentally ran over the hook on the strap of my favorite crossbody purse with my office chair and I need a new strap. Also my boyfriend lives right by a Guitar Center!

    Kate you've been the boho goddess muse I need in my life since like 2008. I'm glad you're still making great videos while staying true to who you are. I wish I could help you get more subs but I've honest subscribed on accounts I've forgot passwords to so I've probably given you at least 4 lol.

  • CarlosGuzman
    CarlosGuzman 2 years ago

    This really wasn't much of a DIY. You literally just bought a decorative strap and just put stones on it...

    • Tsvetana Peshkova
      Tsvetana Peshkova 2 years ago

      it's a nice idea IF you have one to turn it into something else....;)

    • CarlosGuzman
      CarlosGuzman 2 years ago

      Tsvetana Peshkova but what if you don't have a boyfriend who happens to play guitar and happens to have an extra strap? In that case I would still have to go out and buy a strap and at that point I would just get one that I already like and wouldn't have to anything to. I get your point though but I just think this wasn't much of a productive video.

    • Tsvetana Peshkova
      Tsvetana Peshkova 2 years ago

      Yes, but recycling is important... so if I got to my boyfriend's old guitar strap, I'll choose it over making a new one or buying a new one ;)

    • CarlosGuzman
      CarlosGuzman 2 years ago

      Tsvetana Peshkova it would have been a better DIY if she made the strap out of other items instead of an already made and decorated strap.
