The cut leather for this bag has been lying around for over a year. After 6 broken leather needles I had given up. Some days ago I got some new leather (thank you, Yvonne), inviting me to sew a new clutch or pouch. But I wanted to finish the bag first. After some more broken leather needles, a regular universal needle did the job! Light blue ribbon, from a generous package I received from Erika yesterday, gave the finishing touch.
