If you recall, my sister purchased a cross-body satchel(I get a kick out of that word) that I admired. I couldn’t get enough of all the pockets. So with an old pair of men’s short shorts I created my own.
Well it just so happened that our Mom loved the bag as well. She searched high and low, but nary a purse was found. To be honest I don’t know how hard she looked, but she couldn’t find one. This is were I came in. I figured I would make one for her, using salvaged material.
The leather is from an old jacket I found at Goodwill and the lining is from a thrifted skirt. When I gave it to my Mom she exclaimed “Oh I have been looking for a bag like this! Thank you. You did a really good job.” So I think it’s safe to say she likes it, and not just because her daughter made it.
