Long Day at the Office

27 Aug

Birthday bag. Check.  Here are some unofficial pictures.

I would have finished this bag ages ago if it wasn’t for this whole handle/strap mess.  Things just didn’t work out  the way I had planed on paper (story of my life).  The handles were too long, then too short, then too stiff.  I made it work. But, then, where do I put these straps? This leather is so beautifully soft that it just melts onto the table, but I want it to stand up!

Regardless of the setbacks I think it turned out pretty well. This black leather is to die for. I loved every minute of sewing it!
