Ahhh, it's Friday night and I've completed a custom order that I have been working on all week. I had been planning these two bags as far as scale and the geometry involved (which admittedly is not my strong suit) long before I sat down to cut fabric. I was asked to use a bit more leather than I usually work with. As in the entire backside of the bags would be leather and it would fold around the bottom. This is all fine except I had forgotten you can't iron or pin leather. Pinning and ironing are my life. I pin and iron everything. Except velvet... which I learned the hard way why not. email me if you think you can iron velvet, I'll save you a disaster, I promise. So, now I don't pin or iron leather either. Add it to the big list.
I'm done. And I love them. Love them so much I almost hate to see them fly out the door. But they are spoken for. And they are going to very good homes. Which makes me happy. And, of course I need to move on to the next custom order, which by the way is an Olivia the Pig backpack. This will be a diversion from these sophisticated black and whites. I'm envisioning a little ruffle action on the Olivia The Pig backpack. Right now I'm still reveling the fact that I'm done with the Black and Whites For Fall.
So, between my black and white totes and my trip down Main Street. It's been a fine week. Now it is time for a glass of vino and spaghetti chicken.
