I have been trying to get inspired and while it has proved difficult, I think I found something that gives me ideas.
You maybe have come across Judy Aldridge's blog http://atlantishome.typepad.com/, and if you have not, you must check it out. Its DIy section is small but she is a very stylish lady. Anyway, this is a link to a Maison Martin Margiela (MMM) clutch that she has http://atlantishome.typepad.com/.a/6a0105364db45b970c0115702278c0970c-pi.
It is bright and oversized and I like everything about this combo. I really like the yellow color but I think other brights would work too.
So, I can make this, no problem. The problem is, however, where do I find a quilted fabric like that?
If anyone has an idea, please share!
Then again, perhaps I can find faux (or genuine) leather and do the quilting myself, but I have never done leather before, much less quilted with leather. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Then, last question. Assuming I go with fabric, how do I pretreat the fabric so it is stain and water resistent? Is there any product that I can use at home?
Lastly, some eye-candy... I have been lasting over three pairs of booties that I'd likely never own:
