I made this purse the other day using scrap peices of leather I have saved from the fabric store. I worked them together to create a single peice of leather so that I could cut out my basic bag shape. I really needed a purse I liked that i could fit all my sketch books in and with cool hidden inside pockets that every girl needs ;)
Leather scrap bags pieced together. Gold decrative thread, lining which was scraps from my boyfriends christmas boxers & the good ol’ interfacing for back up support..this was aprocess & I am trying to post a how to..but i cant remeber how to resize my images..soon to come!
My singer for being a champ iin the process.
