Bag Decoration Ideas

I made a small black bag for my costume so i didn't have to carry around all my stuff in my Gir bag (makes me more in character, I guess).

Anyways, the costume is steampunk and I have everything ready but I think my bag is rather boring. I was going to make some decorations for it but I have no idea.

I don't have money so I can't buy anything (though I own a lot of nonsense stuff), it's an "around the house" costume. My color scheme is silver, blue (or purple, haven't made up my mind), black and a little bit of brown here and there.

Any ideas on what to make for it?

My first thought is some sort of latch that is brass or uses gears. Also, depending on your concept, you might want to have some electrical tubes on the outside. Check with antique stores or TY/radio repair shops that have been around for a long time. They might have some out stuff they will give away.

You could cut some gears out of cardboard, cover them with clay and then use metalic paint over top.
Or you could cut them out of cardboard and then use them as stamps to make a painted design on the bag.
Bits of chain from broken jewelry or whatnot would make a good embellishment. (maybe with a bit of ribbon?)

Love that idea! Did that for a lolita purse.
See if you can add pouches or pockets to the outside as well.
