Thanks for your interest and your questions... Unfortunately both our blog and etsy shop had to be shut down because despite using the proper avenues to secure our name, we received a "cease and desist" from rubylane.com. Apparently we (Ruby Lane Designs) and our handmade purses were a threat to their antiques business. So our blog (and the tute) are gone... We are sorry for the inconvenience. We should've made copies, but did not forsee this issue ever arising.
We are also sorry for not replying sooner to all of the comments, but as you can imagine we've been a bit sad watching all of our hard work go for naught...
We will be back at it this spring and summer as Jill & Sarah Designs. Thanks again for your support, inquiries, and inspiration!
Jill & Sarah
