those of you who know me, know that i am all about upcycling materials and items. I scour flea markets and junk stores looking for inexpensive items with potential to be something new and cool.
recently i purchased a piece of old leather for $6 and have been excited to sit down and figure out what the heck i want to do with it. it's a material i haven't worked with before. Another potential place to purchase old leather (should you be so inclined, would be thrift stores - check out the clothing for old leather pants, skirts and jackets)
so last night watching, "The King's Speech", i created these. not sure what they are "suppose" to be, but really they could be anything. they would look great hanging from a journal, a book mark, a keychain, something to hang from your rear mirror or even throw on a chain. Regardless, my mission was accomplished, because they are quite cool.
