The Fleur handbag was made out of recycled leather and left over fabric from my Pink Bomber Jacket Project.


Manufacturing Process

I created a test piece by cutting out a rose from a left over bit of leather. I used a pair of nail scissors in order to be as precise as possible. Happy with the result, I used the same technique on the lid.I glued silk to the left side of the roses and added eyelets. In order to give the leather stability, I added a layer of horse hair canvas. As I do not own a leather sewing machine, I had to sew the visible seams by hand.
