Ok, so maybe, just MAYBE, listening to Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones in the studio influenced this week’s project just a little bit. I have to admit, I totally think I’m so cool now loading up my laptop and flaunting this bag with all the fringe flowing back and forth behind me as I walk. 🙂
About a year ago, this huge leather coat found it’s way into my stash after a bag sale at my local thrift shop.
But the leather was a bit stiff for a coat, the buttons were hard to button, and it simply needed a new life.
I know what you’re thinking. But there really is no reason to be afraid of sewing leather on your regular machine! Just make sure you are using a leather needle (110/18) and your machine will do just fine. I promise.

To thank you, once again, for taking the time to comment and pin this week’s Leather Fringe Bag Tutorial over at eHow, I’d like to give away another copy of my newest book, The Refashion Handbook to one of you. I’ll announce the winner next Saturday.
Have fun channeling your inner hippie!
