It seems like I’m on a roll for getting some projects finished up in my Christmas Stocking Swap as I have managed to finish one more fun gift.
Yes, it’s another box bag. I can’t help myself – I just love making these things. This version, however, is for my partner’s husband (because I am a firm believer that everyone in the Christmas swap should get something) and is made from leather. I had purchased this cow hide from Fabric Mart quite awhile ago, but hadn’t had a chance to use it. It’s very stiff and it wasn’t going to work for what I had originally envisioned, but it is perfect for project! I lined the bag using a tan Alexander Henry tattoo print – I just LOVE the way it turned out. In fact, I’m going to have a hard time giving this one up. Before I do, I plan on taking it with me today when I teach my box bag class – I think it would be nice to show how this bag can look made up with different materials.
Over the weekend I hope to start on the stocking itself. I had purchased some materials from Fabric.com just for this reason and it should show up today (more on that later)! I also hope to put up some book reviews on the site – I’ve gotten behind on posting them!
