Q&A with simona.bu73

Imnotsewvanilla asked:
Just lovely, thanks for sharing such a beautiful project.
simona.bu73 answered:
I'm using an industrial machine which I bought used because it would be too much expansive! I'd like to send a photo.... I posted just now a picture of it here with the bag, there is also a view of my working place!
vicki1911 asked:
Great bag, Simona! Where did you get the design from?
simona.bu73 answered:
Hallo, sorry for being so late in answering!!! My mother-in-law lent a bag like this one for some time. I did my measures and drew the pattern. Then I tried to make another one with the leather I had. So this is the result.... I'm just learning... but thanks for your kind support!!!
Jackie303 asked:
Simona, Very nice handbag!! I love it. Where did you order the hardware?
simona.bu73 answered:
Hi! I found a site on the internet www.hobbyland.it but it is Italian. But I only bought rivets and puller for metal zip. I don't think they are hard to find. Generally I find some difficulties in finding beautiful gold hardware... Near my home there is a good leather shop, I buy some hardware there too, but due to this financial crisis it is always harder to find some good crafted Italian hardware. And it's really expensive...
Gardenmam asked:
Great bag! What weight leather did you use, and can you share where you purchased it?
simona.bu73 answered:
It was quite a thin leather, so that the bag keep soft. I had to reinforce the zipper parts and the bottom.
