I made this for you too. Custom orders continued...

Envelop Me Purse in customer's own supplied hide.
This customer bought this hide at a local market and wanted an Envelop Me purse.  With a bit of redesigning to compensate for the thiness of the lambs hide, here it is.

Triple Chevrons
 After having spotted my double chevrons, Hapa in Christchruch asked if I'd customise the design into a triple multi coloured chevron.  It was something I'd been thinking about and hadn't quite convinced myself to embark on, but was definately keen to produce more of these little beauties after seeing the results!

My favourite is the triple coloured on the far left here - fullgrain gunmetal, patent gold and textured teal.  Yum yum.

I made it for you. Custom orders...

Now & then I get requests to make something to order, often a variation of an already designed product, or a new product the customer has thought up themselves.

You may or may not have seens these pictures previously - I've been posting these in my facebook Custom Orders album but I thought I would just have a tidy and post the bulk of the photos here, leaving just one of each to be admired in the album.

Tan Cluster satchel with custom lining
Debbie contacted me through Felt and requested my signature Cluster satchel with a lining of her choice.
Here's the finished product:

X-tra large Cluster Satchel
Anna contacted me through my Felt shop and asked if I could enlarge the satchel to fit her requirements.  She requested a bright lining and this fabulous turquoise leather which I was lucky to find!

Here's the large version photographed together with the standard version.

Giant 'Cardholder' laptop sleeve
Briar requested a giant version of my signature cluster cardholder to fit her 13" Macbook.
I photographed it with a fashion illustration book that happened to be the same measurements at the Macbook.

The downside to making beautiful things for people...

Is that you fall in love with them and have to part with them...

Custom ordered travel wallet

I've got a fun project right now making a set of travel wallets for a customer.  First I tried out a design in some kangaroo leather I've had lying around for a while.  I got the go ahead for this design, so it was off to find two different kinds of black leather for the project.

I found two great kidskins, a smooth and a textured - perfect for a man/women set.

I had some brass plaques engraved at Mr Mint, just figuring out now how to attach them and have asked the customer if they want them attached to the inside or the outside. 

 Will post finished wallets when complete.
