Hello Craftsters!

Since I haven't showed you anything new in a while, I thought I'd show you my most favorite bag Smiley I made a removable strap for this bag, so it can be carried in 3 different ways: like a shoulder bag, like a clutch and like a purse. The pattern, like in all my previous bags, was drafted by me. The bag is made from faux crocodile leather, which is very beautiful (in my opinion, of course) and quite easy to work with.

Thank you very much, bunny1kenobi! I guess I should thank the faux leather - it really makes the bag look better Smiley

Very cute!  I've been wanting to tackle some faux leather but haven't gotten anywhere to pick any out yet.  You did a great job!

Thank you very much, AshtonagoL! You should try faux leather - it's not hard to work with (actually, it's easier for me to work with faux leather than fabric) and I like how people don't suspect that it's a "homemade" bag Cheesy
