Black leather journal (once a briefcase) with tan leather straps - hand sewn with a french link stitch with lime green thread.
I hammered the straps to the black leather with eyelets - and gently sanded the eyelets and leather to give more of a "worn" look.
Today was CLEANING day in the studio!
It was just getting too chaotic and although I usually don't mind stepping over heaps of leather and paper and follow the small path to get to my tools at the other end of the table - it had just gotten out of hand.
So, a few visits to the store and a few black shelves later -
all is in order again....
until tomorrow at least!
