I came across a whole bunch of leather remnants today... Some of the pieces are tiny (perfect to make patches!) and some are big enough for tote bags. I made this one today:

The interior is a vintage sugar sack, and the handmade heart shaped doily (!) and madras print cotton trim are thrifted. There will be a bunch of these bags in the shop at the end of the week.
