Look What I Made... Wanna Win It?

Hi there. I'm so so SO excited to share my most recent project with you! I've been admiring these little leather cross body bags. Here are some I really like:
I thought since I have been working with vinyl a lot lately that I could manage something like this. So I went to work last night on a black faux leather crossbody purse.
...And I did it!

It is the perfect size to hold all of my essential items. But it's small enought that it doesn't allow me to collect junk (which I tend to do when I have the capacity of a large bag).

The inside pattern is a geometric Amy Butler Home Dec fabric... which I've had forever but hadn't got around to actually using. I think it works well here.
Here's my outfit for the day:
leather bag 1
Top: Ragdolls
Jeans: Seven for all mankind (ebay!)
Shoes: BC footwear (Nordstrom Rack)
Necklace: Mandipidy
Purse: made by me!
