Using leather

I make myself a bag probably once a year....

I am currently using a wicker one, very African and roomy.  I usually remain attached to my "current" bag for a while.   But then a flicker of a new possibility appears.

This is by new to be "current bag"  I am using favorite fabrics, bright and happy for spring and Summer.  I am also using leather for the first time.  And I also learned how to do dividers by consulting this Amy Butler book.  It is a work in progress.

Wow that is really cool! Is it hard to work with the leather?

Hi Carla,

No, it is not hard... Just use a strong needle.
