Okay! 

Here's the purse I hope to make:




And here are the fabrics I'm considering ... I think they might be too busy together, though, so maybe the brown with a solid brown flap and a light blue rosette?  Thoughts?

That is an awesome bag, kaz814! Yes, the brown fabric for the bag and the blue for the rosette is a good idea! And plain brown for the flap is a good idea too, hahaha so helpful  Wink

Do I see little blue dots/hearts on that brown fabric? It looks so cute!

 I think doing the whole bag out of the brown swirl and then adding the blue rosette would look good. It will bring out that touch of blue in the fabric. Very pertty piece!

So I made a pattern for the front (and back) panel of the purse I want to make.
For the side panel I am going to cut am simple rectangle. I measured the circumference of the pug face with a wool thread an take that as a reference for the length.
It will be made from  black and light "apricot" colored faux velour leather. I have not decided on the fabric for the lining yet.
The stupid thing is that I need a little scrap of black patent leather for the nose and I do not have any. Since I do only need a little piece I hope to find some  patent leather item at the dollar store that I can repurpose. I have a really big stack of all kinds of fabrics scraps for doll making or so and it seems everytime I need something and only a little bit of that I turns out I don't hoard it. Sigh

I've enjoyed looking at everyone's patterns and fabric choices; Glamis you are obviously skilled at pattern making!
I'm pleased to report I've made some progress of my own.
Everyday Clutch 1 is in progress; I am making it from a suede mini skirt which has been sitting in my stash for a year or so. I bought it from a second hand store sure that I would use it in some crafty way and apparently its destiny is to become a clutch.


I'm not using a pattern but I have some ideas of what I would like it to look like; I had better start stitching!

JessKelly that is such a good idea recycling the skirt. I am excited to see what you turn it into.

Glamis, it liooks good and complicated to me! Can't wait to see what it will look like when it's finished!

JessKelly, I have seen a bag made from an leather skirt in a DIY/recycle book and have been looking for a skirt in thrift stores since then! It looks like a complicated job (again) to me, but I am curious what it will look like when you are finished!

Working with leather sounds so difficult, you will have to sew right otherwise you will end up with little holes everywhere! And I know I normally make a mistake or .... well too many! Haha, guess I should try to sew a pattern with fabric first and then with leather.
