Tomato Bag Again

The threads I used for stitching are wool threads, glass beads sewn down with a waxed cotton thread.

Oh yeah another important lesson learned, do all of your hand stitching first, then put the fringe onto the bag! I didn't tear up the fringe, but it was difficult pulling threads through for my french knots, because it was there.

The bag doesnt' look so bad now, it was pretty lifeless looking in the beginning, but there are better cuts of leather to work with, cuts that have more soul to them.
