The one and only Choo choo train purse.
Trying to figure out what else I could do with a belt, these are what I came up with.
This purse actually surprised me. I didn't think I was going to like it, and it turned out so nice that I will continue to use the pattern.

I decided to step it up a notch, after making way to many of the same old fabric clutches. With the few clip frames I have left, I though I would try and make something a little more special. My Japanese fabrics are getting a little sparse, so these will most likely be a limited edition.
One of a kinds are great, but once and a while I luck out with finding enough "reusable" leather that I can reproduce something a couple times. Either way it tends not to be a true duplicate because of the belts I use for the straps, and the material I choose for the lining.

I guess it actually all started with these silly things. I was so excited about this fabric when I first got it, I had to find away to share it and this is how I did that. I can't even count how many change purses I have made. If I was to take a guess, I would say at least 300.
This is how it all started, about two years ago. I must have made about sixty of these clutches. Something that I most likely wont do again either. Considering my little factory consists of only me and my two hands. No heavy duty machinery that is probably made to clamp seal the metal from onto the fabric. I still have a few frames left that I have been saving, so I guess there are a few yet to be made.
