The idea came when I feel in love (and brought home) a "new friend" from the Coach outlet. It was impossible to resist a 80% discount on a leather designer purse, and donating money to the race for the cure at the same time.
A couple of days ago I cut the basic piece a for a mockup bag to figure out if I was even going to be able to pull this off. I also didn't want to start cutting that gorgeous chocolate damask and see it end up in an epic fail due to lack of preparation.
It was a good thing I did... Believe me I got very attached to my seam ripper on this one. VERY. Long story short, after an epic fight to finish it on time, and some hesitation on the button style for the closure it's DONE ! And I love it... now I have to get my hubby to take me out on a date so I can show it off.
