i finally finished this little leather pouch. i had a vision of how i wanted it to look and it took a few tries to get it right. i have a little pile of chopped up leather and a few failed attempts on my table. when something like this is giving me a hard time, i generally step away from it for a day or two. or three. usually when i do this, a solution will come to me while i am doing something else. i love how it turned out. this one is for sale in my little shop, but i am going to make one for myself. and i will tuck little love notes or snippets of my favorite poetry into it. maybe a tiny treasure too.
