Another Diddie

A couple weeks ago I posted a necklace I made for my oldest friend.  In this post I mentioned also making her another diddy.  Well, I finally finished it and sent off the package.  I decided I would make her a small cross-body satchel.

I want to open an Etsy store(I have been saying this for a while, but once I figure out what I want to call my brand, it’s totally happening) with the different bags/purses I have been making.  I wanted to get her opinion and I figured what better way than to give her a bag I made.  I insisted that she be honest, I am all for constructive criticism.  She was and it was all good.

I dyed an old pair of R’s jeans, hand painted the gold stripes(although I came up with a more time saving technique if I decide to do something like that in the future)  and used part of a second hand leather jack for added detail.  Even though I bought the lining at Joann Fabrics, it was from the remnant pile so I feel like it still sort of remains true to my idea of recycling the materials.  The chain and zipper’s are new.

I thought it turned well. Maybe not every ones taste, but structurally I feel it is pretty sound.

Tell me what you think.
