I'm a mom, a wife, a writer and an inveterate planner of sewing projects. My current passion is upcycling no-longer-wearable leather objects into useful, pretty, fashionable leather objects. Clutches, makeup bags, keychain pouches and ipad covers are the most fun to make so - for now - that's what I do.
I source the leather from everywhere, use recycled materials for linings and would kill for a good source of big, chunky, glorious zippers ... for now, I scour thrift stores, estate sales and the liquidation sales of the many (sadly) fabric stores in Los Angeles that are going out of business. BTW, when Joann's is the only game in town, I'm moving to Canada ...
