What a great purse. Love it! I am thinking this project could also be done with Ultra Suede material. Still would be soft and would look great. Of course you would line the purse.
Suede is a natural Aniline leather that has been surface brushed or buffed on the grain side of the leather creating a nap and leaving a texture similar to velvet (softest of all leathers to the touch). Usually suede has a natural finish, but may have a light protective coat and a transparent leather dye for colour. This process increases the leathers surface exposure making it extremely absorbent. Water drops will darken the leather but it returns to its original colour after drying.
Irresistible in butter-soft suede is this chic Italian bag from Sundance. It deftly adapts to bulky or bitty loads with ease. Zen-like styling (no zips, pockets or snaps) make this easy and versatile carryall for virtually everything.
You will need:
- 1 – 4 oz. [1/16″ thick] Suede split hide, 16 square ft.
- 1 spool of cotton or nylon thread
- 1 leather machine needle
- Kraft paper
