Sam and I spent the weekend working on a bag for Maggie. I custom ordered some Iowa Bison pull-up leather in saddle. I was pleasantly surprised that this run of bison had a more pronounced pebble grain and chcolate color with a deep burgandy undertone throughout. It is really slick with the white cross-stitch, so Sam went crazy with stitches.
Here are a few more photos.
Once the bag was finished with its straps and edge painting, Sam went about creating the blingy, custom tags for the bag. And I embossed in the Beargrass logo with a 400 degree embossing die and a thousand pounds of pressure.
Sam's bling components include some howlite, turquoise, citrine, and red jasper.
