natural leather handbag

I have made a leather handbag, the hand stitching was a challenge that my fingers aren't going to forget in a hurry but it was so worth it.  I was scared I wouldn't be able to turn it right side out, but after applying a leather conditioner it turned with just a little force. Hubby turned the wooden balls for me, it's actually wood from a tree in the back yard.  On the inside I stuck a little pocket in for my phone.  So happy...

a visit to Leffler (what an amazing array of leather) - a piece of leather for $60 (with left overs) - 2m leather for the handle $6 a metre - some linen thread - quite a bargain for a new handbag.
