I hope this helps anyone who has been having the same issues as me! Thankfully, you can fix any separated leather item. For my wallet to dry, I wedged it in my English toast rack — no it is not used for letters! I also know you are supposed to let it dry 24 hours before ever using it. Allow the repaired leather strap to dry overnight, before using the purse. One last thing I wanted to mention was that, a few readers have mentioned that this Edge Kote is coming off when wet on their hands. Let me know if you have any other questions! I love your post and I ordered the Edge Kote today to fix my Coach purse strap. You could also use this technique to fix a leather belt, canvas like Louis Vuitton small wallet or purse strap. Make sure the leather paste you purchase matches the color of your purse strap.

May 11, 2009 The vinyl, circular handles on my purse have cracked badly. Isabel, I am not an expert in purses at all,but if you have only been using them for two weeks that would worry me.
If your bag's leather strap suffered severe damage, send it to a professional repair shop. That would work if I knew what it was. The hardware is brass-colored, and the hardware on the tote is silver. Lol I am so glad I found this webpage!! Your post gives me the solution. A brand new handbag you won't find anywhere else! I found this green purse, and I used it exclusively for over 2 years.
They both just said it was normal wear and tear. We offer a one year warranty on our handbags, briefcases and small leather goods. Once everything is covered let it dry for at least 10 mins until it is dry to the touch. They look terrible, but the rest of the purse is in perfect condition. Due to the thickness and toughness of leather, it may prove difficult to repair. Repairing a leather purse strap can be easy, if you follow the right steps and have the right tools on hand.
I thought it would be a great color for hiding dirt from daily use but I was very wrong. Debra, I know that they normally just fold over and resew the straps on around at ring,but it all depends on how it looks if that can be possible. As a temporary fix before I can find another purse, I taped over the handles, then covered them with braided-type strips. Its just the fraying and splitting on the edges and I was so sad that I just keep carrying it like this. Their customer service is awesome!! Then you can make grocery totes, wallets, floor cushions, and bibs. To get to this point, I was at about 5 coats. Acrylic is rubbery paint that when dry is waterproof.
Now, it was time to start the second side. Then it just put it inside the tote. There were a few options my girlfriend told me, go to a leather repairs shop but leave my precious there?

Squeeze a dot of glue between the layers. Again thank you for this great post! Squeeze a small pinch of leather repair paste onto your finger and apply it to the sanded-down area. God bless and help you. I can't afford to lose it or get it repaired in a professional store. If there is a crack below and you add more, it will only be a matter of time. So, to the clearance section of the Coach outlet store I went.
Wipe the excess leather filler with a damp cloth and wait for one hour for the filler to completely dry. Yet most modest rips and tears can be taken care of with careful stitching you can do at home. At first, I would lay the Q-Tip on a paper towel,but it bleeds through really fast so a thick magazine was a better choice. Not seeing what you are working with is hard to envision, but still another idea might be to just begin again all over and go with a smaller braid and tuck the braid back under itself as you begin, gluing and clothespinning one end until dry before trying to wrap the rest of the handle, then gluing the other end when you are through, letting it dry overnight under the clothespins? To make a knot, pass your needle through the thread of the stitch you just made -- just the thread, not the hole in the leather -- and pull your thread until there is just a small loop. I used to buy really inexpensive purses,but after having to replace them multiple times a year I decided that I would invest in a real leather purse so that it would hold up better.

Thank you so much, Sarah You can look at this webpage I found that has the best pictures of the bag I am trying to clean. I am going to buy the kote in black and see if I can do as good a job on this purse.

Since a leather purse strap's main purpose is to provide a handle for the person to sling over his or her shoulder, the leather is constantly being manipulated and bent. Good deal, but I really love this bag. So first I took my purse out of storage since Grant got me a new one for Christmas. I call it my Coach recycling program.
