A clutch out of the same soft cobalt blue leather and a great mid-size bag with two straps. (Thank you, Shannon, for your suggestion.) I’ll be posting both on Etsy later today and then I will be out of touch for the next few days, enjoying all the wedding festivities. Enjoy your day.

This bag is made from a small remnant of beautiful pumpkin leather. This is my favourite size of bag–11.5 x 9.5 x 3″–big enough to hold wallet, phone and other necessities, but small enough to be comfortable. The cross-body strap can be knotted to carry the bag on one shoulder, tucked under your arm. It also has an outside pocket, a must for me, just big enough to carry subway tokens or a couple of keys.
However, my favourite part about this bag is the lining. It is a great orange and lemon remnant from a shop on the market square in Limoux. I’ve screen printed the bird with attitude inside and added a zipper pocket.
All in all, a great everyday bag.
Feedback and ideas come from many sources. There is a great woman at my local bank who always comments on my purses. She wears a small cross-body pouch to hold the various cards she needs for her daily routine. She suggested I try to make one, approximately 6″x 6″. So here is the prototype–Jan–made from a red leather jacket. I have some bright green leather, the sleeve of a batwing jacket, and I am hoping to transform it into a second one. The lining of this one is one of my favourite cotton prints. The pouch has a snap closure, a small pocket and rivet detail.
