More prototyping


I made this new handbag for myself about 6 weeks ago now, and I've been carrying it around and testing it out ever since. It's the perfect size to fit everything that I need to carry around on a daily basis.


I decided to try a slightly larger version today using a lovely Umi Komache fabric panel teamed with macrosuede.

This one will be for sale at the market on Saturday....

Geez Cam you're really churning out the goods now! That break without your machine must have given you a boost! I like your bag, spots draw me in! :)

Oh... the Umi Komache panel bag is terrific. It looks like a great size for my digital camera which has long lenses. I'm really excited to hear how the market goes! You've got so much stock!

Love that ultrasuede one and great shape.

They are great Cam. I'm a macrosuede fan!

I got a sample book at the Op Shop a while ago & have been using it for music box lids. I'm pretty mean with it though...I don't ever want to run out.

That bag will be snapped up quick smart.
