Day 8 - A Black Tote.

I woke up super late due to the late evenings I've had recently, and thought today would be a great day to take apart this beautiful lambskin coat I've had and make something out of that!  I should clarify that the coat is not beautiful at all, but the leather is gorgeous!  

I love big leather totes and when the leather is so beautiful, I really like to let it shine.

Finally - a good photo because I finished when we still have sunlight!

i always shy away from black leather, tending to prefer browns or colors.  I spotted this coat a thrift store with such beautiful soft lambskin and in such nice shape - I couldn't refuse.

So basic and beautiful.

Even when I think it's going to be an easy project, I still find myself spending 3 hours getting it finished....  this is a tough fun-a-day.  

However, now I'm done for the day, so enjoy it i will!

Enjoy your Sunday!
