So excited because I got some new recycle leather the other day. My eyes were locked on this caramel leather and I could not wait to create a new tote. This color is perfect and it will be hard to not keep this bag for myself. If I can live with out this new creation it will be on my Etsy shop this weekend. www.treefairfax.etsy.com

I'm in love with this slate color leather and I used every inch of this leather to create with. I really like this clutch and the look and texture of the leather really makes this bag stand out. I added a tassel to give it a finished look. This bag is now up on my Etsy Shop at www.treefairfax.etsy.com

So I decided to clean out my work room and I try my very best to use every piece of leather that I have. I had so many odd pieces of this toasted leather and I couldn't let it go to waste. I feel like I cut a thousand strips of leather that day but it all paid off. I really love the way this bag came together and I have just enough strips left to make two more bags. I love making one of a kind pieces.

I really love creating with this chocolate leather, its very rich in color and has a smooth feel. The more these bags are used and carried around the better the leather will look. This was definately a great find when I went searching for new leather to create with. Please check out my Etsy shop for new items. www.treefairfax.etsy.com

I love a classic tote, wearable everyday and looks amazing with a pair of jeans. This chocolate brown leather is amazing and it will look better and better as time goes by. I really like it when leather has that worn look. I'm still in the factory creating each day and I hope to have a lot to offer on Etsy and at a few local craft shows.

Sunday creations, lots of cutting and sewing today. Just finished up this backpack and I think I really love how it turned out. This chocolate brown leather I found when I went for a little country ride last week and I am putting it to good use. I will definitely have my new creations up on my Etsy shop very soon.

I took another trip to the country and found some really nice icy grey leather. This is a recycled piece that already has that worn look a feel. This is by far my favorite recycled piece to work with and every bag turns out great. I have lots of creating to do!

As you know already I love to recycled leather. I can't even throw the smallest piece of scraps away so I decided to make a little hungry monster. I love this little monster and I have named him Money Hungry and he will keep all your cash in a safe place! Find him at my Etsy shop www.treefairfax.etsy.com

Got my hands on some new leather. It's extra soft and the color is perfect for the Fall and Winter. I love a oversized tote bag and I always manage to fill it to the top. This bag looks and feels amazing. I used recycled leather and it gives the bag a fantastic look. I will have this for sale and more very soon on my etsy shop. www.treefairfax.etsy.com

Here is a little something I created today with some amazing buttery tan leather. I love working with recycled leather because it has that worn look and feel. I'm obsessed with the pouch style bags lately and decided to make one. I definitely need to make more!

Just found a stash of white leather scraps and I wanted to create something different. I found some black fabric paint and an old broken pencil. After sewing the bag I poured out some paint and went to work. I really like this bag and cant wait to create more. This bag will definitely be for sale at my Etsy store. www.treefairfax.etsy.com
My niece was cleaning out her closet last weekend and came across this old grey leather jacket. She knows that aunt Tree loves to recycled leather and I went to work on this jacket! I decided to sew seams along the leather and created this mini bag. I lOVE the way this bag turned out and I will create more with the left over scraps.

So I have a little suede to work with and this has been my first experience sewing this material. I really love the color and texture and I think this clutch turned out pretty nice. I just love the look of this bag, it's definitely saying something!

I LOVE thrift shopping and finding hidden gems. I came across this brass cuff at The Second Helping store and fell in love. I am kicking myself for not buying the matching necklace :(
On another Thrifting adventure I found these lovely gold vintage bangles. The are perfect and one of my favorite.
