Here is a Keely made from some more of my scores at that amazing fabric store. This is a fantastic Mircosuede with this circle detail stitched in a gold thread. Gorgeous. It is lined in a stone colored Linen. Fab. I also set the magnetic snap in a delicious rust colored leather. I am loving this bag and am off to make a duplicate to keep for myself! Meanwhile this one is for sale in my shop.

Soo...I found the most amazing Fabric Store about 30 minutes from my house. It is seriously the size of a Costco or Home Depot...But instead of being full of hammers or vats of Mayo....It is full of Fabric!!!! On Sale!!! It was almost all Upholstery weight (which is exactly what I need) and I almost cried when I walked in. Thousands of bolts of fabric. In every possible color.
I was sure they were going to tell me It was only for "the Trade" and I would be turned away. But No...They let me in and ignored me like proper discount warehouse employees! I must have been completely overwhelmed...I couldn't decide what to buy. I was there for hours and only bought a few yards of a few different fabrics...
This, The Gwen, is my first bag to be made from what I managed to purchase that day. It is not in my usual blue/green/brown color palette and I like that. It has this beautiful Persimmon colored Leather combined with a warm woven floral. It is my first time working with leather and I am in love. Not scary at all.
I have a few more to share...stay tuned.
