It's true what they say about all good ideas being borne out of necessity. I NEEDED a small everyday purse that I could carry across my body or over one shoulder. It had to hold the basics - wallet, car keys, phone, lip gloss. And it had to be cute enough to complement a dress, and cool enough to go with my converse and jeans on the way to the movies. I have to say I am more than excited about the result!

I made several prototypes, refined a few things, and here it is! Hope you like it too? If you have any suggestions on how I can improve it, or what features you'd like to see in a small bag like this, please feel free to convo me - I love the input.

The details:

❣ medium weight up-cycled vintage soft black leather coat reinforced with sewn-in stabilizer for strength and structure
❣ high quality heavy weight stitching
❣ one in-seam exterior pocket, with magnetic closure - small, but easily accessible
❣ strong magnetic closure on front flap for security
❣ hand bound leather ring
❣ front flap is one piece from flap over back to back pocket - no seam helps it "slouch" more
❣ lovely brand new Japanese cotton lining in starry blue pattern
❣ one interior patch pocket
❣ silver hardware
❣ long strap - length when hanging is approx. 30.5 inches from shoulder to base of bag
❣ measures approx 9w x 6.5h x 3d inches. Depth is 3 inches at base but tapers a little towards strap. A thick standard size paper back book slips nicely into it with room to spare.

All my lovely bags are made personally by me and I love creating them. They are all one of a kind made from up cycled leather jackets, all with different personalities and features. No two are the same. As such the re-purposed fabric and leather may have some flaws that are reminders of their past lives, but this, and features such as old stitching lines on some items, are part of their vintage charm.
