Next stage of Wine Bottle Carrier

I decided to use the Eco-Flo 'Saddle Tan' antique gel for this project and forgo any background dyeing.  I have a couple of chrome tan colors to pick while this piece dries.  I picked up the zipper yesterday.  I will have to work on designing the bottle cap as well.

Cowboys purse 99% complete!

I had Big Papa Leather help me with all of the applique sewing and he did a great job!  I glued the backing to the sewn leather and then glued the 'guts' or interior to the leather.  Finally, sewing the border with a light grey cotton thread and away she goes!  I hope the new owner isn't too upset since this order goes back to May 2010.

Wine Bottle Carrier Pattern under Construction!

I am working on a wine bottle carrier pattern.  I moved on to the carving pattern. I decided to use a Jim Linnell inspired pattern since I recently took a class from him.  I felt it really fitting for this project.

Cowboys Fan inspired Wallet

This one has been in on the waiting list since this summer.  The owner ripped the first I made her because it could not carry all of her stuff.  Since I try to keep my works to one of a kind stuff, I came up with this design.  One side will have the word 'Cowboys' and the other side of the multi pocket purse will have the famous star in DC colors.  The project is done in chrome tan with several layers of applique.

New Roper Wallet

Here is a recent roper wallet cover I recently finished.  I left it in a natural finish.

Journal Cover is Back Completed!

The journal cover is back from DFC Studios after being dyed with color.  Danny did a fantastic job and he normally does.  I need the liner and pockets to complete it before delivery.
