Orange purse

This purse was made from lambskin leather I purchased at Tandy just for the colour. The handles and the basic pattern were from a Value Village purse find. I still have issues with expecting leather to behave exactly like fabric and had to do some modifications in progress to make it work. Not my best stitching for sure but it is usable and with the popularity of orange at the moment, timely as well.

Purse for grandaughter

This was one of the fastest leather projects I have done. We had about 2 hours to get the purse and bracelet done before her sister woke from her nap. Obviously I would have normally done things a little differently but she loves it. Purple is her favourite colour and the only leather I had was the faux crocodile, so she ended up with a pretty stylish purse and bracelet for a 7 year old :-).

Card for Niece

I haven't done any cards in a long time but needed one for my niece. They had a destination wedding and the girls wore shades of peach and orange so that gave me a direction to go in with this card. I used my KNK for the lettering and cuttlebug folders in my Wizard for the embossing. It took a lot longer than normal, I am quite out of practice.
