Fixed My KL Tote Bag's Handles

Saturday, 6.19.20

I finally finished fixing my red Karl Lagerfeld tote bag with a drawing of Karl and Choupette inside a yellow NYC taxi. The handles were falling apart, mostly the black strips on the sides. I had placed red tape on three different areas on each handle, but it looked tacky. So, weave thick red cord around the handle to cover the whole handles in a macrame-like handle. I used square knots, all the way from one end to the other. I decided to add some colorful beads at the bottom sides of the handles. It now looks like a fun boho tote bag. 

I sometimes use this tote for the gym as well as Sunday yoga meetup at the park. 

I fixed my KL tote bag handles and gave it a new makeover look.
