Mage satchel

OK, have another apothecary/mage’s satchel up for sale on Etsy.  I ran out of the leather I was using to make the other ones, so found one that’s similar in color but definitely not in texture – this is MUCH softer, more like deer hide (which it might be).  I’m still sort of torn as to whether I like it or not.  I mean it definitely doesn’t look bad – I just don’t know if I like it as much as the others.  I’m going to try this other veg tan leather out to see if I like it any better.

Had a good weekend.  We hung around the house (Stephen’s) on Saturday; made these two items to replenish my shop which was down to 3 listings, and sat around listening to Mahler’s 3rd and 5th symphonies, and Bach’s cello suites played by Edgar Meyer on bass.  Stephen made chili, I made a chocolate meringue pie, and we had fish tacos for lunch — it was a good day.  Yesterday we went to a concert put on by the composer’s group that Stephen’s a member of, then had a couple of drinks at Jackson’s and went back to Stephen’s to watch the Oscars.  Which were pretty entertaining.  Lady Gaga is apparently an extremely talented and versatile performer — her Sound of Music medley was amazing.

Anyway, it was a good weekend, and even though today is Monday again, I’m at least glad that the sun is out (mostly) and the roads aren’t icy, and I’m making money on Etsy.  All good things.  🙂

In lieu of sharing each new item on FB (although maybe it’s getting to be time to start a Facebook page for Leatherings), I’m posting here.  On the suggestion of someone from Reddit, I made a satchel (well, they’re really more like pouches) from black leather and just put it up.  Included a drawstring in this one, which I think looks great!

New item!

Just finished a large apothecary’s satchel and listed it.  Because I’m supposed to shamelessly self-promote, I’m posting a link here.  Will maybe even open a FB page for myself once I have more inventory.  This last piece took longer to make than the first piece because of all the extra design on the strap.  (Picture links to Etsy listing.)

Also, for good measure, here’s a snapshot of the satchel from the game.

SO, I decided to go ahead and open up a shop.  I have one little item listed right now — but there will be more, trust me.  At the moment, I would like nothing more than to be able to spend all my time making leather things, but since that’s not an option I’m instead going to try to figure out how to get my listing to show up in Google.

Here’s the link – if you’re on Etsy, you should totally like my shop.  It would make me happy.  

I’m uploading pictures here because I think it’s just so cute!!
