Just wondering if you did it yourself what did you use, any tips??

I have a modalu cream bag that id love to dye black but bit worried about messing it up and ruining the bag?

I have dyed leather shoes with great effect. Just make sure the leather is porous to take the dye. I bought the dye in Timpsons shoe repairers.
