    Default Add a Long Strap = DIY Messinger Bag!

    I was wondering something, and who better to ask than the baglovers on this forum!

    I have a small leather handbag- Dooney. It has a shoulder strap. When I go on vacation overseas this summer, I'd like to carry a cross-body style of bag. I was thinking I could just swap out the shoulder strap for a longer one and convert it to a messinger bag!

    The question is, where does one buy a strap only? I already checked eBay and wasn't impressed. I wonder if an Army Surplus Store would have military-style straps. What do you guys think about the concept?

    I think whatever works is good with me. I sadly don't have any ideas for straps other than buying one from LV, which is because that's the only place I know to get one.

    Maybe contact D&B and see if they would sell you a longer strap from another style bag.
