Bag it

I had some time to make just a handful of larger items for City of Craft and I’m pretty psyched about how they all turned out. No hiccups or problems with the process. Everything went smoothly which doesn’t usually happen when I’m spazzing around about getting big pieces done in a hurry.

There are these handlebar bags – made of chocolate and a kind of pumpkin brown leather. Brass hardware. Hand-stitched with waxed linen thread.

 

 

And one Daily Planet purse. This is exactly the right size for carrying around a Canon Rebel, cord, charger, wallet and small notebook. Or whatever you want to put in there instead.

 

Made of a beautiful brown leather that scratches and distresses easily, this bag will only look more awesome as you use and abuse it.

 

All the hardware is heavy-duty brass. All the stitching is done by hand with waxed linen thread.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go knock off another round of writing for the final day of NaNoWriMo!

In other news, it’s November. Are you always kicking yourself about not writing what you want to write? Sign up for NaNoWriMo. I did it once a couple years ago. It’s quite awesome to have an external deadline, even if it’s one with no major consequences…except, of course, the feelings of worthlessness that accompany the crushing defeat of failure to follow through. No biggie!   <——–motivation!
