a little of everything that's gurgling and bubbling away here in the lab!

My newest three just in time for the holidays in my Etsy shop now!
I am so blessed to have had such a variety of great colors of leather and suede to use this year. As usual, toward the end of the year I run low on everything. Now that I am sewing for two different places, I am using up even more leather and suede than ever! I love it, but I am finding myself running into trouble with designing new appliques and putting colors together. It is a challenge even with a rainbow of colors in front of me and now that I am limited a bit, it's even more of a challenge to find things that work together and look good. I like to have a few pieces with more neutral colors on hand just because not everyone wants a bright yellow or purple wallet. The tricky part is that I use up all of the neutral colors pretty fast and only have teeny tiny scraps to work with for the face of each wallet. I think I may need to rethink my appliques a bit so my leathery goodness can stretch a bit farther. 2015 should be fun and full of new ideas!
