The thoughts, sewing projects, and fabric oglings of a dedicated sewist.

Leather Straps and Bias Bindings

Did I hook you in with that title?  I hope you won't be too disappointed when you discover that this post is actually about handbags and wallets instead of something more sexy and illicit (although I suppose that depends on how you feel about accessories).

These are bags and wallets that I made in December and January for skirt party clients.  It's fun sometimes to make something that doesn't require a fitting!
