Good morning! My blog has a new look. I found out that my old theme was going out so I had to decide what theme to use. It’s not that easy to pick one. Long story short, tada! Hopefully when I publish all will look great. In the world of computers there are always changes to keep up with. Just like life……. 🙂
A while back I posted on our facebook page a beaded turtle work in progress picture. I have finished the beaded turtle and made a tote for it to live on. That is what I would like to show you today. All the pictures have a link back to this bag.
This bag has recently SOLD. If you would like a custom beaded bag contact us here Thunder Rose Leather This leather tote is all hand stitched. It all started with a work in progress turtle. See the pic below.
The beaded turtle has a beautiful turquoise cabochon in the center as a focal point. The beads next to the turquoise cabochon are fire polish glass beads I purchased from Janice at Flutterbye Bead Supply on Etsy. The seed beads are size 11 and I sell them in our bead and leather supply store Thunder Rose Supplies.
It all started right here .
Measurements on this tote are 10 inches tall x 10 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches deep. It has an extra pocket inside. This leather tote makes a great everyday bag. I carry one this size and love it.
As you can see there is a lot of room. I wear mine crossbody and I find it very easy to open and close with the antler tip closure. It is very easy and convenient to get in and out of and the antler tip closure is very secure.
This beaded leather tote is waiting for it’s new home.
