I finally plucked up the courage to sew the leather. I don't know what my apprehension was about because it sewed up quite easily. I used a few Googled directions that steared me in the right direction. I've added little rings on the sides so I can add a strap.

My fabric printing inks arrived. I have bought a litre of opaque base and 4, 100ml bottles of colour concentrate...black, red,yellow and blue.
I used the little wasp lino cut I made on the fibre art course, then a solid screen printing wasp.

I have been interested in sewing leather. I have used a small piece of soft (lambs?) leather to make the base of this little clutch.
I used an old grey woollen blanket as the body of the clutch and some beautiful silk as a liner. My intention is for Penny to use it to carry her phone and keys. It will also be able to accomodate a few other bits and bobs.
