Handmade: A (Hard) Work in Progress

In the midst of the hustle and bustle of all that relocating, while reclaiming my Southern roots, drowning in sweet tea, and trying really hard to ignore that huge Michael's Arts & Crafts empire up the street, I have managed to get my studio back up and running.  I thought you might like to see a little of what goes into the making of my most popular messenger bag.

Soft but sturdy high-quality cowhide is meticulously cut, topstitched and sewn.

This Deluxe Messenger has well over a dozen pattern pieces and components;  I love every one of them!

Hard-working hardware and a giant, authentic antique key complete the look.
Many hours, many podcasts, many cups of tea later...finito!  Isn't it yummy?
