Suede backpack

You may remember a while back I used a suede jacket to make a book.  I still had lots of suede left waiting for inspiration to strike.

As the old saying goes...Necessity is the mother of invention....

I needed a bag of some sort to carry at the Renaissance Festival this weekend that would look a bit more like a bag from that period.  After seeing the crazy expensive prices of the beautiful tooled leather belt pouches I knew I needed to come up with my own design.  I'd already spent too much on my new bodice... Did I mention how much we love the Renaissance Festival!! 


I must apologize for the poorly lit photos...it is a very dark and rainy day here but I just couldn't wait any longer to share...

Where were you when I was trying to sew a strap to my cover? Looks like you got yours on the right way. Yep, it's quite a "period piece." I love it and hope to see some photos of the festival, too.
