My friend Penny asked me to make her a red strap for a small bag she had. I told her I had used all my red leather on my recent totes. However, when I went searching in my bins I found that by combining various scraps of leather, I had not only enough for her strap, but for a small Keller bag. Meet the Penelope. This is a great handy tote, 11″ wide, 12″ tall and 4″ deep with an adjustable strap and two pockets outside and another two inside. Two different types of durable red leather, one smooth, the other pebbly give this bag a unique look and inside the lining is a great wax print from the market in Bondo, Kenya. The double leather bottom with feet add to its durability. This is designed to be a great everyday bag with pockets to organize the details your life. The Penelope will be in the shop tomorrow morning.
