Repairing Damage to Leather Handbag

This is my favorite handbag gifted to me by a special person. I was riding a bicycle and put this bag on the handle. I don't know how, but it got a a hole and few scratches. My heart sank when I saw the hole. I am a college student. I can't afford to lose it or get it repaired in a professional store. Kindly suggest a thrifty, cheapest, almost free solution to repair it and reuse it. I don't mind doing it by myself. I just want it repaired and reusable. Please help me.

Take your purse to a shoe repair service, look for one in a nice area, and ask for an estimate for repair. You might be surprised at what they can do.

Tried to get piping repaired in Coach tote by shoe repair and Coach - was told it couldn't be fixed. I'm going to try Joanne's Fabrics - was told they have a patch kit.

I can't think of any way to repair that sort of damage. Is it a real leather handbag, or synthetic? If it was more of a sporty bag, you might be able to glue a patch on it that might look cute, but since this is such a dressy bag, I think you should check out a shoe repair place and see if they can fix it for you.

Get a leather repair kit at walmart for ten dollars. Do it yourself.
Goodluck

Patch it up across the entire bottom portion of the purse with vinyl of the same color.
This can be found at JoAnn's or even Hobby Lobby.
