New bags will be added regularly. Many one-of-a-kind.
Here's the history behind these two remnants:
The green velvet is from yardage for a coat.
The Celosia Velvet in Sandstone Desert by Wren Leyland was fabric I purchased from Spoonflower for pillows to coordinate with our new peacock and rust velvet sofas.
I have enough of the Sandstone Desert to make one more bag, but I'm teaming it up with a rust velvet next time.
The button is one that I drill the holes myself. It's a favorite when I create coats for men.
I recently designed this bag for myself. I've never been a fan of big bags, but covid showed me that I needed something larger than my cell phone pouches to carry everything I needed.
The silhouette is reminiscent of a saddle bag with an organic, almost kidney shape that lays perfectly on the hip.
It's not too big or bulky but carries everything I need while making them easily accessible.
The strap is super comfortable and secure.
There's a snug pocket on the outside if you need to grab your cell phone quickly along with two pockets in the interior.
There's even a loop on each side and one carabiner clip for your keys to so you won't have to go fishing.
I am determined to reduce my fabric stash.
I have challenged myself to take a few pieces each week and create something new.
Most will be one of a kind, some will be one of few.
