liliv-1, it isn't a difficult purse to make.  Just time consuming.

I absolutely love the look of the Celine Trapeze bag, just not the hefty price tag.  So I got the idea to make my own version of it.  I bought some beautiful glossy, dark purple leather and black suede from Tandy Leather Factory.  I also had the brilliant (semi sarcastic here) idea to hand sew the leather cuz my machine wasn't working and pretty much do the entire purse by hand.  3 1/2 days later and nearly 10 hours of work and this is what I have. 

The measurements are 25 cm in length, 20.5 cm in height and 9 cm in depth.  I tend to do my purses in centimeters instead of inches.

I kept the interior very minimal with just one cell phone pocket and a key strap (both are glued in place with E6000 glue cuz I suck at making and sewing pockets) for my keys.  The side flaps are beige vinyl that I already had on hand.  I think the beige is a nice contrast color to the dark purple.  I also riveted in some black bamboo handles.

There are minor mistakes and things I would now do differently but all in all, I accomplished what I set out to do so I am very pleased with the end results.  It was definitely a learning experience.

Love the turquoise bag.  I really enjoy working with leather.  I am lucky enough to have a Tandy Leather Factory in the town I live in so I can get leather and leather working supplies from there or leather from thrift stores.  Do you have a hand stitching awl?  I finally bought one and it is amazing for handsewing leather.  I love how it gives a sewing machine stitch but by hand instead.
