Leopard Print Leather Applique Clutch
Once upon a time, I won an art award in the 4th grade, for a paper hand-cut (and glued) portrait of myself. It's clear to me, many, many moons later, that this was my destiny. Today, instead of using paper, I use leather. And, I Love it. I'm not sure if I'll get rich from this passion, but, I do know that my heart is happy. So far, I've only made two of these cute leather applique clutch bags. The first design looks like a monarch butterfly, with gold studding and beautiful fringe. The most recent version is my interpretation of leopard prints, with additional hand knotted leather fringe.
|The inspiration began with (2) brown leather hides, and some leopard print fabric.|
|After sketching the leopard pattern, I hand-cut them out of both leathers, and started to sew them down to the cream background.|
|Add holes for the fringe to pass through..|
When it was time to add the fringe, I was stumped. That's
when I began a poll for friends to help me decide..
|As you can see, #1 was the people's choice!|
