Every now and then, you make something you absolutely fall in love with. That for me was the Bustle Backpack! I loved it so much, I ended up making it in 4 different colors, and had to restrain myself from buying more fabric to make all the colors in the rainbow...
My 13-year-old daughter is huge into owls right now, so I thought I would make her an owl purse for Christmas. Ssshhh! Being the thrifty-green sort, I found a wool tweed suit jacket that had seen better days. The moth holes on the collar and ripped up lining made it undesireable... not to mention the ginormous elbow patches and the leather braid buttons. So... old wool jacket, wool scraps, thread, and dye on hand, and those nifty leather buttons from the coat - all I needed was some lining fabric. (I had a coupon for Joann Fabrics!)
Hello! I hope you all had a wunnerful weekend. I had an incredible weekend (more about it in my next post) and then I got knocked over sideways by food poisoning.
The ornamental nature of faux fur provides you with a creative palette to design attractive handbags and some styles feature many characteristics similar to natural fur and come in a multitude of vibrant fashion colours.

Suede is a natural Aniline leather that has been surface brushed or buffed on the grain side of the leather creating a nap and leaving a texture similar to velvet (softest of all leathers to the touch). Usually suede has a natural finish, but may have a light protective coat and a transparent leather dye for colour. This process increases the leathers surface exposure making it extremely absorbent. Water drops will darken the leather but it returns to its original colour after drying. Irresistible in butter-soft suede is this chic Italian bag from Sundance . It deftly adapts to bulky or bitty loads with ease.
