Two more bags hot off the workbench...snap up the new small tote (on the left) and the snaffle pouch.
Both bags are made of patent faux crocodile leather... The croc snaffle is birthday present for a 90 year old lady!
The wonderful jug is made by Doug Fitch check out his website and blog for exceptional ceramics.

The Boys Own Satchel made up in a lovely subtle willow green.....the school satchel below was sold before it left the workbench but there is more willow so don't weep.
My photos make these satchels look the same size but the Boys Own is bigger...follow the website link for actual size and spec.

I have just been to see the David Hockney exhibition in London and made myself an ipad bag in orange, for the occasion! The exhibition was an inspiration, firstly as there was such an impressive body (and scale) of paintings on display and secondly that his motivation is so accessible....to notice the changing seasons and the beautiful nature around us. Really wonderful and I came home to birdsong and Spring.

An interesting commission!
These fabulous pieces were designed by fashion students from Hertfordshire University for their final show.
The bags were designed by Isabell Glueck and the harness belt by Hannah Wright.
They sent me complete design spec and chose colours...and I made up.

Very chic new tote bag made in faux snake leather ( leather with a snake pattern printed on top of it). A bit of a diva to photograph because it can be all soft and silky one minute and a veritable hold all the next.
Lined in Sanderson's 50s fabric and available on the website in my 'Retro Range'

This bag order went all the way to Russia! Its seriously cold there and Nick and Tatyana braved the snow to send me back a picture. Its a wonderful thing that with the internet we can meet and have contact with lovely people around the world.
The bag is the 'oak' workbag made up in chestnut and Nick found me by trawling through Google images for handmade leather bags.....how clever is that.

I was making this satchel in tomato red and suddenly realised an extra fob and buckle would flip my classic style into the traditional 'school bag' satchel.........now I am looking forward to making some more in different colours.
I have already added the school bag satchel to my website!

Two very simple and chic faux snakeskin leather bags...made for fun because I can't leave the beautiful ivory alone! the midnight is edged in black and the ivory has been left plain. Shoulder strap.....big enough for purse, smartphone, kindle and blusher.

This is a picture of a bag order from November....this very organic shape is a variation of the arts and crafts satchel .....the straps attach to the sides of the bag instead of the top. The colour is espresso with grey stitching detail.
