Carmen (striped, vegan leather, shoulder/cross-body)
This is Carmen.
I made only 4 of her. What?!? Let me explain.
I was searching for a nice striped vegan leather option for my next design but I just couldn't find one that I liked at all. SO! I decided to make one myself. It took forever to cut strips of fabric from two colours, sew them together to make one gigantic piece. I almost lost my mind. THEN, I cut the pieces to make the bags. Lots of cutting and lots of threads. But I think she's worth it.
A friend tells me that I'm insane. Ya, possibly, but I'll definitely do it again! Even though it took many hours to assembly the stripes, the outcome is fabulous! Now for the details.
