A while back I saw some vinyl wall decals at a dollar store in a nearby town and my brain started churning, trying to come up with creative uses for them.  I wish I could say that I thought of this, because it is absolutely brilliant!  We spied this purse makeover at Sewing Parts Online, using the decals to create a bold, graphic design on a thrift store bag.  The decals have a similar texture to the surface of the bag, easily giving it a custom, professional-looking finish.  [how to decorate a purse with wall decals]
