I get a lot of compliments on this bag, people want to touch and ask which material i used, the bag is so colorful and so special. For the moment it's my everyday-handbag.
The second one is a tote, I bought the fabric and the leather for the handles and bottom last year in Orvieto, Italy.
I sewed the leather myself on my Bernina with a special needle.
To strengthen the handles a sewed a small piece of leather inside. The result is not perfect because the small pieces slip a bit while sewing, although I have used some glue.
But overall I am very satisfied with this tote.
