Beaded leather sunflower bag

I created a different beaded rosette this week and love the way it turned out. First I got all the beads and stones I wanted to use . As you can see I started off with a simple yet elegant turquoise stone cabochon. Around the turquoise I added some glass fire polish beads in a turquoise green color that went with the turquoise cab. From there it was some of my favorite colors of glass seed beads that I thought would look real pretty in this colorful sunflower.

Once I had the rosette done I decided what color of leather this beaded rosette would look good on.

We have a variety of hides in the shop so I take the beaded rosette off to the leather shelf and start pulling hides down. This time I picked a wonderful mahogany color hide. It is one of my favorite colors. It reminds me of the red rocks in Sedona.

Now it’s time to decide what kind of bag do I want to make. This time I decided to do one of our favorites which is a simple fringed handbag. It’s great for a phone and a few other items. It’s also a great place to keep a special journal.

We cut out the bag, lace it up and now it’s time for the beaded rosette to be added. I glue it down then I sew it down. Then I lace around the rosette giving it a beautiful extra dimension. As you can see in the picture.

A fringed leather handbag with a beaded sunflower
This fringed leather handbag measures 8.5 inches tall x 7.5 inches wide and has a 48 inch crossbody four point braided strap. It can be thrown over the shoulder , worn crossbody or tied around the waist with a loop knot.  It will hold a large or small phone and a few other things.  I also feel this is a wonderful way to keep a special journal. Like a gratitude journal or a journal you are writing special prayers and keepsake quotes from yourself and other special people.
