2 in 1 clutch combo!!

this one needs a name cause i think i'll actually keep this design and recreate it in different leathers, faux and reclaimed. did you ever take out your clutch and find you needed more room all of a sudden? i have worked all weekend on this problem and come up with my clutch combo.
should you need more room all of a sudden just unfold this clutch and move a couple straps around and voila!!!!! and really sleek hand/shoulderbag!

here are some more views:

new stuff alert!!

adventures in leather, this hobo is zippered, has two front pockets and one interior pocket, organic canvas lining and a neat-o houndstooth detail on the front panel. let me know how you like or dislike the design, i'm not sure if the strap is too thick. the front pockets come in handy for easy access. i have been experimenting all week with reclaimed leather.

pro to type

working on some new designs, i think this is pretty much what the new clutch design will look like except a little wider, a little more fold-over action and some rivets, the strap will be more finished too, and probably a removable strap.

more new stuff!!!

just finished this fold over clutch a little while ago!!!!

i never know what name to give my bags, i end up just naming them after the techniques i use or what they look like. some people give them girl names, some people name them after cities, i think i better start getting some names together.

new stuff!

i hate to start every entry with 'i've been so busy i haven't been able to blog', it's so generic. but it's true. i really have been dedicating lots of time to making bungaloe a success. so in the last couple weeks i have been researching where to get leather to reclaim, and scratching my head on how to sew it together. i don't have an industrial or commercial leather sewing machine so there are many trying times when sewing. and i am self taught, mostly through trial and error and internet research. it takes time - lots of time. anyway i have to get back to work so here's a new bag you can buy it in my etsy store if you wish!
it's made from reclaimed leather, features verticle ruffles and studs, a zipper closure and removable strap and of course is completely hand made!
