Sewing: Trial and error

Saturday, May 19, 2012

First things first, I'm obsessed with embroidering! I want to embroider everything!  I did a little bit of embroidery to two of the clutches above but I'm not sure if I'll stick with the design. Which leads me to my next point... the only thing I don't like about working with leather is that when you mess up, you mess up, so I'm trying to be as careful as possible when trying out a new idea because leather does not come cheap my friends.  These bags are pretty much a wash (boo hoo) so I guess I'll try to save as much leather as possible.  So, what new skill are you learning these days?  Have any of you worked with leather before?


  1. Wowza, those are fabulous. Loving the embroidery and the envelope clutch. Just gorgeous:)

  2. What's a wash about these? Are you doing some fancy camera tricks? I like the envelope clutches!

  3. Why a wash? I think they look beautiful. I love the combination of the navy/white stripe with the chocolate brown leather.
    My friend Eric works with leather and hand stitches all his bags. Can you even imagine? Wait, are you hand stitching or using a sewing machine? Keep at it.

  4. Some of my measurements were off so I have to change a few things. Wow! hand stitched leather bags? I'm in awe!

  5. Aw, from here they look awesome.
