Last summer at Bucks Open Studios (now called Bucks Art Weeks) a lady enquired about a new pattern for purse being made from one she purchased over 40 years ago. The old purse was stunning and alas was now falling to pieces. The customer wanted to retain certain features and adapt others. What a challenge! She also wanted it in navy blue. So with a clear brief I started to research navy blue leather and lining. We then met to discuss and confirm the fabric and leather, and then you can see the results below.
