Handbag Crazy

I can't help myself.....

I just keep on sewing handbags.....

This one was in my creative space last week....

Exactly the same as the other one, but this time, with a brown strap. I really like the shadows in this photo, taken in the early morning light.

Maybe I'll focus on making something else this week.

It's so addictive isn't it ? This is when we are at our best and when our creative juices are flowing , thinking about what to do next ! Do you find this happens to you ? (maybe it's just me ....)

I love love love your bags!! I just wanted to ask you where you get your metal adjusters for your bags? I have such a hard time finding good hardware for them. Awesome stuff..

No need to help yourself (somehow, this looks weirder written down than said in my head). Your bags look lovely!
