Custom Love

Phase two of this wonderful custom bag is coming along...
I had forgotten how magical it can be to co-create a piece with a wonderful patron.
When you're given the freedom to pull together requested elements
it's like running through a meadow
trees in the distance

There is one more custom bag available -
I don't know when or if I will be able to offer something of this magnitude again!

Never knew how lovely wheat would be to tool.
I sense a leap coming, a new level of design.

I also want to offer a tutorial in the coming weeks:
using a molding spoon.

It make a really powerful difference in the 'cleanliness' of your leather work.

I am itching to get my teaching muscle flexed
for leading a weekend-long workshop
in beautiful Snohomish, Washington

On June 1st and 2nd, 2013:

it will be two days focusing on tooling and bag construction
and to say I am excited is an understatement.

I hope you are having a wonderful week, dear reader!

oh please, please, a tutorial from you would be a treasure! And molding spoons have been scratching at my curiosity lately.

SO excited about your workshop, it will be fantastic, I'm sure! going to check out the details... just in case, you know.

YES, a tutorial would be so cool! I always wonder how the magic happens...Also, the wheat is really beautiful!

Oh, sweet Sunny...if long term layaway were an option, I'd be ALL over that custom order. xoxo

I have not yet heard of molding spoons. I agree with Cat, a tutorial from you would indeed be a treasure! Can't wait to check out the workshop details, too.
