Ok so I wanted to make something for my friend's birthday, she loves dashund's so I searched for inspiration, and found this!

http://www.dutchbydesign.com/products-Dashund-Bag-Red_KDBRD.htm

It seemed easy enough and a cute idea, so off I went to make her one! I've never worked with leather so I was rather nervous...and I've never made a purse, so the zipper and lining was a first try for me as well. I think for a first try it came out pretty good, but I'm not sure if it's worthy as a gift, would she really use this? The pocket area is a little too small for my liking, doubled by the fact that I had to stuff the rest of it with filling to make it stay up.






I also have some softer, lighter purple leather that I bought and some interfacing(which I've also never used). But I'm leaving to go see her tonight...should I just leave this grey pup at home and try again and hope to get it to look better? Is this one a complete failure?

Any suggestions or ideas on how to get this to look like the link would be really appreciated! I'm still learning! Thanks everyone!

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!

I think its awesome! It looks a lot like the link! I am sure she will love it!
Its not a fail at all, and since its a clutch it is supposed to be a bit small.
Take it and give it to her!
