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. 

 

 Sam keeps saying that the big pebble look reminds her of alligator.

 Maggie wanted a shoulder bag for a small, hot pink computer.

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.  

 

 I love how the embossing on the bag went deep enough to mimic pull up the color of the grain.

Sam's bling components include some howlite, turquoise, citrine, and red jasper.  

 Sam included a zuni bear in turquoise for Maggie!  Afterall, Maggie is a true mama bear.
