Night work

Last Saturday I was feeling restless. I had planned to make a leather bag in daytime, but daytime was really busy. So finally quite late in the evening my egg could go out. It just came the way it was, without a lot of prior thinking or designing (I was just too tired...). This leather was used right away, because who's a better receiver of a bag like this then Kristel?


Sewing this first large leather bag late at night didn't turn out perfectly, but luckily Kristel is not a perfect perfectionist ;). She invited us to their together-100-years-old-party. And what happened? Kristel was wearing nude colored clothes, just like the color of this bag and, M discovered yesterday, apparently did I unconsciously use the same colors as she used in their invitation. Funny, isn't it?



The edge of the green leather was used just like I bought it. Of course I didn't want to spoil this beautiful material. I enjoyed roller-cutting it. Like cutting butter! Above you see a cows mark, that I loved to use.


For those who wanna know how to make it: here's the inside of the bag.
Kirstel, you did such an awesome party preparation! So well done! You made me happy with being so happy with this present.
