Handmade from recycled leather. I love the color of this leather, it reminds me of caramel and Summer time. Check these bags out at www.treefairfax.etsy.com

I love creating one of a kind bags out of recycled leather. This fantastic black leather was perfect for a drawstring bag. I have a limited amount of this leather so I wanted to create as many bags as I could and in different sizes. I love how these two turned out and they are now for sale on my Etsy shop at www.treefairfax.etsy.com
I'm so glad that I got my hands on this super soft textured leather. Being that its recycled its perfect for creating slouchy bags. I love this small drawstring bag and how the fringe turned out in the front. This is the perfect bag to grab and go when you don't want to carry a huge handbag.

When it comes to handbags my belief is The Bigger The Better!!! I carry so much crap with me on a daily bases and I need a bag that can keep it all. I put this leather monster tote together last night. I named it " momma's bag" for some reason that's the first thing that came to mind. I am in a serious creative zone right now and I am wearing my sewing machine out! I plan to make lots more before Spring hits. I will try to get all of my new bags on my Etsy shop very soon. www.treefairfax.etsy.com

I'm loving this caramel leather and I was so excited to get my hands on a huge piece of recycled leather. I am addicted to drawstring bags right now and I couldn't wait to use the caramel to create one. I want to make many different sizes and even add a strap to throw over the shoulder. More bags to come!

I have been trying to figure out what to do with all of the bright white leather that I had laying around. I finally decided to tackle this leather and I'm so glad that I did! I played around with some black paint to give this tote a solid look. I am loving the way this turned out. I love black and white, it's so clean and crisp.
