It’s that time again!
I signed up on a whim, despite having never made a bag or purse of any sort before. For some crazy reason, I though single-drop peyote would be the best stitch for this project, so I have only finished the pouch portion at this stage.
It is big enough to hold a few credit cards, an ID, and a few folded up bills.
I plan to add a flap of some sort to the top, with some sort of fastener to keep your goodies safe. And then I’ll need to add straps. I’m thinking about just stitching on some D-Rings to the sides, so that I can trade out straps between leather purse straps or something beaded or a chain. I haven’t quite made up my mind yet.
The colors were inspired by these gorgeous pieces I got from Petra Carpreau of Scorched Earth on Etsy. They were actually all freebies from various orders I have placed with her and apparently, she has guessed my taste perfectly.
I haven’t quite decided on placement. I know I want the button somewhere on the flap, but the dangles might hang off of the flap or off the bottom of the purse. They’re ceramic, so luckily they’re really lightweight, since this purse is already really heavy.
So, it isn’t finished, but I have been working really hard on this thing and I am very proud of it. I love the colors and the design (especially how those chevrons turned out!).
I will definitely post an update with pictures when I finish the darned thing. In the mean time, check out what everyone else has made!
