Great looking bag, but must confess I got a good laugh out of this! When I first saw your mini picture, I thought it was someone's bikini top, since you hung it around the neck of your dress form! It really caught my eye bec. I said to myself: "Oh dear, this woman should NOT be wearing a bikini top without some sort of better support for her quite-large boobs!" Sorry, but I had to tell you! lol

Thank you for the kind words :) Working with leather was much more fun than I thought. The leather was purchased at something like "Leather Suede and Skins" here in NYC. You can order from them. However, I don't think that they show everything they have online. Their leathers are beautiful.

Luv this bag. But, can't find a copy of the pattern! Apparently HotPatterns isn't distributing it any more.
