Latest Addition

Another version of this big bag,... this time it is make of the velvety denim blue. Here I used tan colored leather,....hardwares of brass and gold.

Bag can open up really big by adjusting the pull strap. Extremely spacious for Lin,... who likes to carry everything,..... everywhere.

I've just completed this bag. This time I experimented with a more feminine and sweet shape. This is my prototype,... it was made with lots of little adjustment here and there. It turn out ok and the overall look is not bad. I'm excited and can't wait to try with different material.

The interior is relatively easier to make after I was done with the patterns. Bag is equipped with a full zip closure for better security. It opens up to a very spacious inside complete with a zipped pocket and a h/phone slot. A little adjustment to be made on the strap,... but I'll work that out on the next one.

Omar, my husband gave this bag to a visiting aunt from Satun, Thailand. He is always so proud of me and excited of my completed projects (that he likes to tell the world).
This aunt, Mak Nah is the youngest sister of my late father in-law. It's been so long since I visited that side of the family. InsyaAllah Omar will take us there this coming Syawal
I'm happy that my bag is going back with her,... so when she's carrying it around she'll think of me and Omar.


  1. Hanim, love the design and you are so good with leather....look so perfect! Wish you could make a pair of shoes to match that beautiful denim blue or the one with paisley design. What say you?
