Move over boring tote!

Refashion a ready made canvas pouch into a swanky tote by stitching on a few metal beads and strapping it with chains and tassels. 

Customize it - and coordinate gems, crystals and chain to suit your fashion style.  


For this DIY, I used a Black Canvas Pouch By Imagin8 from Michaels Craft Store and picked up some chain and metal beads to go with it.
