Well, I was very excited to have almost finished my first clutch using leather accents on the corners – a lovely pattern from lbg studio. Here’s a work in progress pic – you can smell my excitement at this point I’m sure.  But as I merrily clipped corners and turned out, my excitement turned to disappointed. Ah, woe.

The leather corners burst the seams, it was just too thick! I even gave it another go and did a triple stitch seam, and although it’s holding, the seams look like they’re about to burst. Dammit! Looks like I’ll have to find some thinner leather. It looks good though!

*sigh.
