Grey is my new black. Or blue. Or something. But definitely my new obsession. I’ve noted it creeping into my wardrobe, and started really, really wanting a grey bag. I’ve been very inspired by some bloggers out there (Made by Rae’s Buttercup Bag comes to mind at the moment, but I know there have been many) whipping up their own bags, and after many months I finally got up the gumption to give it a try myself.
I was able to get this grey corderuy on sale and had the lining in my stash. Then I started cutting away. I am still working out the kinks so I will probably post again on this once I feel like it is done. I wanted a messenger type bag that could also convert to a shoulder bag so I called in the services of my new snap press I purchased at the start of the summer. However, the snaps aren’t strong enough so they sometimes unsnap and the bag drops. I think I will be adding a button or something additional to secure it. That is on my list for this weekend.
Other than this technicial issue to resolve I love the size, shape, and the way it carries, so I’m quite happy. And already thinking about what else I need in grey.
