Chalkboard Vinyl Haute Couture

Chalkboard vinyl handbag

In this final experiment with chalkboard vinyl (for now), we have a hand-stitched, high-fashion handbag.

When the blackboard is blank

When blank the bag looks utterly stylish with a nylon web strap secured to the sides with D-rings. A loop on the lower front contains a piece of chalk that may be slipped out of the loop and used to scrawl words or pictures on the bag when inspiration strikes.

The bag's clasp, concealed under the front flap, is magnetic.

Begin the day with a blank bag looking fashionably discreet and then, with a chalked word or two, become as provocative or in-your-face as you want. Come to think of it, this is the perfect bag to bring to a protest march.

Note there are no how-to instructions in this post. If the concept inspires you, start playing with chalkboard vinyl and make a bag of your own.  For more about chalkboard vinyl in general and other chalkboard vinyl projects see the Chalkboard Vinyl Scribble Tote and Chalkboard Vinyl Pins.
