Hi everyone. this is my first post but this is a leather purse i just made.

it has 2 short handles, and one long. it can be folded over for the long handle use.

also those leather roses.....wow time consuming.

Love it!  Where did you get the leather--  Did you purchase the leather or was it repurposed from something else?  I love the little rosies and the fact that you can carry it with short (my favorite) or long handles.

This looks like a designer bag!  Great job.  I am so afraid of leather, but I have been saving my *gorgeous* 90's leather jacket to make some stuff out of.  Maybe I should cut into it soon.  I am so inspired!

the leather is a factory scrap from tandy, as are the metal bits

it was done on a normal sewing machine, that fought me all the way!
