The Long Awaited Leather Reveal!

I know, I know, it took forever, but believe me when I say, good things come to those who wait ;)

I have found leather is so much fun to work with, and it has really given me a fresh sense of energy in my work. It's a completely different look, the accents in the details are completely new and every step takes a little longer, but I am having so much fun with this stuff!

The leather I got is really nice, pebbled leather. It's upholstery grade which means it's very strong, yet still buttery soft.

 I've been using contrast stitching, pleating, creative folding and accessories  to bring out the personality in each bag I create.

I made a solid black pleated leather handbag for my sister. It nearly killed me. Plain black??? No accents? No ruffles???

But she wanted p.l.a.i.n.

And I will say....I did not hate it!

I know that many of you have been itching to see the new spring line, and I will be posting the new pieces tomorrow, so be watching :)
