Perfect Solution

It's not easy getting a good picture of Roxy; she's either avoiding you or giving you such a pitiful look. She is walking a lot better than a few months ago for which I'm thankful.

I have been working on my large canvas totes and decided some time ago that the natural dye that I've been doing should be incorporated into the design. The brown trim across the top has the "look" of suede. I would love to include leather and suede into my work as the look of them is so appealing. But I just can't bring myself to do it. so when I saw that the experiments I've been doing give me that "look" well...it was the perfect solution.
These bags will be in the shop later this week.
