"It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project." - Napoleon Hill

The following was so easy that I'm loathed to call it DIY...instead, let's just say it was a happy concatenation of circumstance which started when I stumbled across a vintage fanny pack...a sentence which I never thought I'd write as I loathe fanny packs...bum bags...any kind of bag that looks like a goiter on a belt. But, the f.p. in question was thin, structured, leopard printed ponyskin on the front, leather on the back and...most importantly, completely detachable from its belt.

Which left me free to track down some vintage brass chain...thread aforementioned chain through the belts loops on the back of the bag...and close the link with the pliers that have been sitting in our junk drawer, unused, for the past few years (self and any kind of home related DIY going together like oil and water).

The result is...a piece of the leopard love that I've been looking for...and another one of those bags that is inadequately small to use to carry the majority of things needed on a day-to-day basis. As a decorative, cross-body, extra pocket, though, it's perfect.
