I finished my first all-leather handbag on the weekend. It is made from two different remnant pieces and the shoulder strap is a rather classy snakeskin belt. All in all, it came together well. It is the perfect size I have been looking for–big enough to hold phone, money and notebook, yet comfortably portable. I’m now working on an orange one and also eyeing the midnight blue for a third. The interior flap of this one is a red suede skirt. I have enough bubblegum pink to line the orange one, and some beautiful turquoise to set off the blue. Now to get down to it!
On the hooking front, I am almost finished the centre of Fireworks–will post this week. Thinking of the border.

This is so yummy! And it does look like a perfect size. What a wonderful way to up-cycle – can’t wait to see the orange and blue ones. When does the onliine store open?????
The purse it fabulous! I especially like the picture on the black chair. The contrast brings the bag to life! The size is great for summer – camera, water bottle, shades and a book =) The textured leather is eye catching. Can’t wait to check it out in person.
You have been really busy! This is so beautiful. Congratulations! xo
