and ended up being a (I think  Roll Eyes) super cool makeup bag!!!  I chose not to line it, primarily b/c I made it on a whim and was just being lazy today...lol  I bought the skirt at Goodwill for like $2!  As if I could buy leather for that price (and, this is VERY nice leather) anywhere else!

Tell me what you think.

I used freezer paper stencil technique on this one too (wasn't sure how the leather was going to work with that - but, it worked beautifully!!!!).

Result:

What it started as (and, I still have a good bit of this gorgeous leather left - and, i'm happy to see that my paint works so nicely on it!!!):

Comments welcome!! Smiley

This rocks and is so simple! A lining lacking isn't too bad since it's leather  Cheesy
