But now I’m nice wooly clutches…….
What a great find that coat was. Not only did I make these bags from it but also a tote bag. The smaller versions were left unlined & the larger, fold-over ones were bonded with cotton shirting. The small white crosses are the coolest crackly leather- I only had a small piece but wish I could make a whole bag from this leather. For the pulls I cut long pieces of red leather for tassels & a contrast. All in all I was happy with the finished product as it really does’t look anything like the original coat that it started out as. These ended up going by the first day at the holiday market. So happy they found good homes! Oh yea, please note the bottom picture! I got a new branding toy- So much fun! These bags were the first to get the new label & were attached with small rivets. So clean & the branding is addicting!
