How did I cover the tear without sewing? I used decoupage! Yep, that’s paper on there, not cloth.
First, I tore a page from a quilting calendar that I have been saving since a press trip to Helena, Montana in 2008.
I balled up the calendar page over and over again until it was soft like fabric. Then, I just glued pieces of the page to the purse using decoupage glue. I finished with a sealing coat of glue. It looks great!
