My linen and silver circles swirled about for a few days, landing on different surfaces only to be rearranged again and again. I craved the feeling of completion by week's end... I'll improvise again this soon, but I wanted a finished product/project. I found myself diving into the basket of leather leftovers from my visit to SCRAP in S.F. Mostly they're just long strips that beg to be straps... but perhaps bucket handles would be even better. I tried some out on a quick bucket and fell in love. It's the perfect little detail to breathe new life into something tried and true. I angled the tips and reinforced the seam several times. You will be seeing more little bits of leather peaking into my sewing as I find ways to use it all up. Thinking it's just the right time to start creating wares for the shop again. The holidays aren't that far off if you are a maker. Time to get crackin'!
