So I splurge on a Celine bag a few years ago and tell myself “well it was WAY cheaper than the rest of the leather bags so it’s almost a deal right?” (heh)
Canvas can be stained unlike leather and although that satisfying original price tag seemed like a steal, I was in for a rude awakening. After I was told by the leather repair extraoudinare that my precious canvas Celine just was stuck with it’s stains forever I was devastated. Relax, I am not really that dramatic but I was a little upset. I mean come on was I supposed to throw it away? GET REAL.
Then murika an idea came to me patches are all the rage right now. Gucci (one of my favorites) lives off patches so…. could I possibly save my precious bag by customizing it with patches? Searching Etsy and Amazon I found tons of awesome patches could this work? I tried a pack of removable patches and hey the stains were covered and I got questioned on the street about who does custom Celines? “Do they have an Instagram account” a random lady int he elevator asked me. Well well well… Looks like I might be patching up my Celine for good.
