Hand Bag Twilly DIY

Hi people!
Sope, when I have light colour purses they tend to discolour quickly especially around the handles.   I'm super worried with my light coloured 3.1 Phillip Lim since I want to be able to pass it down to my girls one day.  I got the brilliant idea in the middle of the night to wrap the handles with a couple of square scarves that I already owned.  I couldn't find any tutorials that square scarf, they all used a skinny one so I decided to create this post to help y'all out!

The scarves I used are 24" square.

Fold the scarf in half leaving about 1" border around the edge as shown below.  This helps when wrapping the scarf so there is only one seam to manage when wrapping.


Start folding the scarf 1" from the base of the triangle up until you get a folded long piece like below.

  


Then tie the scarf of one end of the handle and tightly wrap the scarf around until you reach the other end.  Wrap and tuck the end through itself.


Easy peasy!


 Handles are protected from wear and tear.
