End of the year Endcaps

The bottle of this wine has some really pathetic little green sausage looking “ground hog”….no wait…its a guinea pig…yeah…

My boss comes by and humors himself…

“Hey, don’t you think it would be fun to draw the little guinea pig?”

(me) “No….why do I want to waste anytime replicating that deranged little illustration!”

(Boss) “Well If it were me, it would be fun.!

(Me) “your irritating me….go away!”

I thought to myself….why not….why not scribble out my own version of a fat little green rodent.

AND…its gonna be dancing with a bottle of this simple-ass packaged wine.

So here it is…..my Guinea Pig who looks like a bottom heavy ferret.

Yup…Holiday items selling so fast that we don’t even need to put up the sign anymore….another endcap that will sit on the bleachers till next year….maybe….who cares.

oooooooh…what a fun name….like my name but it can’t shut up.

a little leather purple satchel

with a front pocket.

In the past I would use double sided tape to tape under the graph paper to the flesh side of the leather so I could use every bit of the leather piece. The downside is, there is a residue left on the leather.

Now that I am focusing on smaller bags, I can spare some cut-off.

I am Taping over the pattern with masking or scotch tape to the grain side of the leather.

Holes are punched and then I will trim out with a utility knife.

Pieces (minus the gusset pieces) are trimmed and edges are beveled.

Ready for stitching….

aside from the closure strap being “way the hell” long, it came out cute and I am happy with the design.

This bag was made with violet Gaucho oil leather from La Bretagna Tannery available here.

Hopefully there is some left.
