Introduction

This guide is for anyone who has a purse with a flaw or two. Every situation is not going to be the same, but this guide is specific to the flaws I have with my purse involving a hole in the inside where the fabric is, and 2 zippers that came off. Usually when something is broken, it gets tossed in the trash, and a new item gets purchased. The idea is to keep the purse instead of throwing it away, by fixing it. Everyone wants security and privacy. With this guide I will be serving that purpose. Holes are common and can be fixed by sewing, and zippers can easily be reattached in a short amount of time.
