This is a leather pouch my mom had as a young girl so it's about half a century old. I use it as a wall decor in my studio and this year I decided to give its life back.
So I washed it up - yes you read right, using good old soap and water and a lot of gentle scrubbing. I reckoned there was nothing to lose and I was right.
The glue at one of the sides had worn off so I glued it with a liquid silicone. As you can see it is a plain, ordinary pouch so I just added a string of colorful wooden beads, some pom-poms and it already looks much better.
When we get tired of this look, we will think up of some new embellishment.
