I've gotten addicted to leather recently. It's to the point that I'm buying a bag of scrap leather a day because I work next door to Hobby Lobby Tongue They started carrying some pretty amazing gold leafed and gold snake skins, so I'm stocking up on some treasures! I made the pattern myself. Everything is hand sewn!
I made this dark turquoise one this week for my mother, I did some nicer detailing in it.

The brown one I made first, it was my practice. It has 'D' rings for adding a purse strap to, and a large belt loop in back.

 I made the periwinkle one second.

I still haven't tried stamp work. I'm just doing some beading so far. This is another small bag I made, it has some felt detailing and crochet flower.

I also made roses and suede/feather/charm key chains for the bags

thanks for checkin em out Smiley <3

Great work! Did you hand sew the bags or do you have a amazing sewing machine? Either way, it looks good!  Smiley

The roses are so pretty too.

Well done, thanks for sharing with us  Cheesy

Beautiful work, I love the natural brown one and the one you made for your Mom sooo much!

I really like these. The size and shape are just about perfect. You did a great job.

I'm a geek, and I dispatch for a bunch of geek cops. I like writing, playing video games, and making messes while attempting to craft.

I'd love to do personal swaps if something I do is interesting to you. I love doing themed swaps.

That dark turquoise is a gorgeous color. I really like their shape and the belt loop on the back is a great idea. Your roses are super pretty too.
