DIY 3: Resurrection of a Purse

Problem:  Black patent leather purse with a broken handle. 

The faux leather handle had ripped and there was no way to repair it. Also, the shoulder strap was broken. The brass hardware broke on one side: it had a brass pin that worked like a pair of glasses and was unfixable. So basically, the purse was thought to be a total loss, un-usable. I cut the handles completely off and rounded the edges to make them match the rounded edges at the bottom of the brass bars on the front. I removed the brass pin that was attached to a brass ring and then used the brass ring to connect the shoulder strap. Now it's like a new purse!
