Sew, Sew

This past week, inaddition to nursing a cold cast upon me by my evil children, I have been designing and sewing new purses for spring.

This a structured satchel made from a pair of my daughter's jeans and embellsihed with gorgeous lace from a vintage wedding dress and lambskin leather from a vintage coat.

The jean pockets are still functional and very handy for the cellphone, business cards, and keys.
Check out the lining. It is a vintage cotton with a western motif!

And the bottom and handles are lambskin leather.
I have claimed this one for my spring bag but I will be making more; each will be a one-of-a-kind creation--different jeans, different embellishments!
