Wow, I can't believe it's 2014 already! It seems like just yesterday the sun was shining and the leaves were just beginning to turn!
But today, Boston looked like this...
...the snow was coming down faster than I could shovel!
Back when the leaves were still turning, I made this simple little bag to practice my leather sewing.
It's just a basic crossbody satchel with a single snap closure - small enough to pack away yet quick enough to grab and go.
And then I made this not-so-simple bag to carry my laptop and work essentials. [sneak peek alert! more to come later...]
I've carried this bag daily for 4 months now, so I think I can safely call it a success. It may even be the most perfect bag I have made to date when functionality, durability and ease of use are simultaneously considered.
This year, in 2014, I promise to share more details behind my pattern drafting and design. After all, it is what I enjoy most about sewing.
What are your plans for 2014?
