Of course, this means I have a studio full of crafty supplies. Which in turn means I have too much supplies and too little space. It's hard to toss out even the tiniest of scraps. Hey, it happens with crafty, artsy people. I suppose you could call us hoarders, but at least we find a use for everything. Eventually.
Don't laugh, or scoff. It's true. I swear!
With some left over scraps, I made this:
|Genuine Leather Handmade Purse
I made my sister one first for her birthday. She loved it. So did family, friends, and her co-workers. The orders started coming in. It's large enough for a small wallet, keys, and a good sized cell phone (my Galaxy S4 fits well in it with ample space).
Okay. So, I mentioned I use even the tiniest scrap. Here's what I came up with for small leather pieces.
|Genuine Leather and Hematite Earrings
|Genuine Leather and Glass Bead Earrings
|Genuine Leather and Natural Shell earrings
