Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing

What materials did you use? Painted leather, thin, stiff cow for the outside, bottle green lambskin accents. Salmon ponge interior. Magnetic closure, interior zip pocket. Interior open pockets.

What are you most proud of? Using the green lambskin to framing the strong print. The project made me think differently bold leather.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a stiff pattern and position it on your print at least five different ways. Expect to learn and relearn with every project.
