Leather Tooled Purse (Pt. 2) // In My Studio

I spent the afternoon listening to Francoise Hardy while stitching the straps and second side of my leather purse together. I really like the buttery soft texture of this leather in contrast with the classic, buttoned-up silhouette. I'm excited to use this as an easy to grab summer tote for picnics, days at the lake or date night.

I realized I have just enough leather scraps to make a wallet, so I'll be doing that next. So happy! I'm enjoying making things more frequently lately -- let me know your thoughts on this bag!!
