version of a backpack! Minimal, dark caramel, brass hardware with hand stitching. Simple yet I feel it will turn a few heads. I've fallen madly in love with this bag because I was only able to make one in this size. It will be hard to let this one go but I can't keep everything that I create. Soon to be posted on my Etsy Shop at www.treefairfax.etsy.com

So this is what I have been working on, for the love of caramel!!! I decided to step away from the Janome sewing machine and do some real hands on work. 50 million hand punches and stitches later..........You can now find them on my Etsy shop.

I have my hands on some really lovely dark caramel leather and I wanted to create a clutch that could also be used as a IPad case. This leather good has a sleek minimal look, easy to grab and go. You can find this item on my Etsy shop at www.treefairfax.etsy.com

I used to love making jewelry and I have a load of crazy beads all over my home. I love to create all day everyday and sometimes I have to step away from leather and do something different. Last night I picked thru my beads and came up with this wooden bracelet. It's not perfect but I kinda love it. This lovely leather pouch can be found on my Etsy Shop at www.treefairfax.etsy.com

My son who is a artist decided to use this little bag that I made as his canvas. I'm totally in love with it and will definitely collaborate with him on creating more. Can't wait to put some of these up on my Etsy Shop in time for Spring!

My love for vintage runs deep, I came across this leather skirt at the goodwill last year. I had some scraps of leather laying around and decided to give these wooden bangles a new look. I also picked up this necklace at a second hand store, I love these vintage black beads so I added a few African brass beads and created a new piece. There is nothing like black on black!

So I am going thru my recycled pile and trying to create as much as I can so that I do not have to waste any leather. I found a few pieces of this slate color leather and decided to create a few mini bags. I love this color and texture and the bags came out really nice. I will have these up on my Etsy Shop very soon!
