Leather and Crochet a Perfect Match
I've been experimenting with scraps of leather making small leather accessories. I realized my small wallet that lovely Ros made for me about two years ago was starting to look a little worn so I set out to make another one yesterday. I used light natural leather, a little heavier than garment weight. The leather was a little beat up looking which I like, it gives it a vintage look. I also pulled out my set of vintage crochet doilies and cut it to measure the front of the wallet. I added a magnetic closure, divider, linen lining, leather detail and gold rivet. I'm very happy with it.
