This bag is made from faux python. No snakes were skinned for this creation. It is interfaced with fusible fleece and lined with black cotton duck. The pleather material was a challenge to sew. It took me a while to figure out that I had to place tracing paper under my foot as I stitched but I was pleased with the results. I used a bronze metal ring from my stash to decorate the flap which has a magnetic snap on the back.

Material Notes

Faux python (pleather), fusible fleece, cotton duck, thread, magnetic snaps

    Very Impressive!! I love it! I know what you mean about the sticking. I recently made a fire-pit cover from vinyl – I’m lucky there’s still hair in my head – it drove me crazy!! I find tissue paper to be cheap and easy to rip off at the end. Too bad I didn’t figure it out sooner! Was the bag your own pattern?

    cool! yes, that is a clever trick to keep the vinyl from sticking! i had used baby powder, haha, but your idea sounds a lot less messy!
