It was such a pleasure making this bag.  It's roomy and cozy and perfect for autumn and winter.  The exterior is a beautiful vintage weaving in ochre, grey, black, and cream, and the lining is handwoven vintage Turkish striped cotton.  .  The hand cut leather straps are both riveted and stitched, and the base is deep and rigid to create a somewhat structured bag and allow for tons of usable space.

This is the only one of its kind, so head over to the shop if you're interested!

Handsome Fox Pillows in the shop!

These two friends were a "pet" project (pun), conceived on the beach (no pun!) as I watched my boys surf.  As soon as they came out of the water, I hustled them home and started sketching.  15 hours of pattern-making, adapting, piecing, sourcing, and cutting later, this is  the result.  I think they're rad and ride that fine line between cute vs. cool. They could work in a young 'uns bedroom or an adult living room.  As you can see, they look pretty at home on my old leather Chesterfield.  Flaunt your foxiness for all to see.    
Vintage Army surplus fabric was pieced carefully in a way that took advantage of existing utilitarian elements like grommets and heavy cotton rope.  I used these as closures by adding a big wooden button.
The foxes were pieced using natural linen, dark cotton denim, and dark brown leather.  These were pieced, fused, and then double-stitched onto the pillow backing. 
They are available in the shop and include the down insert, taxes, and free U.S. shipping.  They measure 20"X20".
Because they turned out to be so labor-intensive, these are likely the only two that will ever be produced!
