Recently I have been doing a lot of sewing for friends and this is no exception. Several weeks back a friend and I were shopping at a department store and she remarked how much she liked a suede fringe purse. It was the prefect size and had the rock and roll feel that she wanted, but we were both in sticker shock when we looked at the price. I had been planning on doing a fringe bag for myself, but haven't quite decided what I wanted so I jumped at the chance of making one for someone else in the meantime.
This project was exceptionally fulfilling because I had everything on hand besides the hardware which was purchased at an amazing discount because my significant other works at a hardware store.
I had the perfect piece of leather to work with from the back of a coat I have used on several smaller projects, and the lining was from a pair of pants that I turned into shorts last summer.
She is absolutely over the moon with her new purse and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. There are a few aspects that I will change if I ever remake this project, but for being my most in-depth leather project so far I think it turned out well. For a more in depth look at my process take a look at my blog! Until next time happy refashioning and stay creative!
