Patchwork Upcycled Leather Bags and French Quarter Inspirations

I finally got around to utilizing all those treasured bits and pieces of leftover leather garments sitting is stacks all over my studio!  I also finally got around to taking a few of these bags down to the French Quarter for a late afternoon photo shoot.  Loving the results of both efforts!

Here are some of the bags in the new Patchwork Collection.  Although I can and will create more, I can't promise that any two of them will have the same color combinations.  They are 100% randomly creative, "of-the-moment" efforts, and I love each and every one of them!









Fabulous backdrops here...  Need to hire a real model though!




And here are a few of inspirational images from the late afternoon/early evening sun in a quiet, residential section of the French Quarter...

Lazy evening sun...


...makes for fabulous colors and shadows
