This was commissioned by a customer for his wife Stephanie’s birthday. He wanted something small she could carry on the bike. Just enough to hold a cell phone and a few small items like cards, etc. Only other requests were that she liked flowers. With that being my only guidelines this is what I came up with. She seemed VERY happy when they came by the booth at Born Free to pick it up. She was very surprised and had no idea he had something made for her. The main purse body is all #1 grade cowhide with old style western flower carving. It’s lined in red suede. The hardware is all solid brass. The strap is made out of calfskin. I don’t do a lot of this style lace but thought it would fit the purse nicely. It’s very time consuming but worth it in the end.
