I recently made this “Lion Tote”, a large faux fur purse for my sister because she loves everything fur. She picked the fabric, I cut two squares, sewed them together, added a faux leather panel for the bottom and a faux leather panel, lined with faux suede, for the strap. It took some wrestling with the very furry fabric and I almost broke my sewing machine.. but good news, the purse and I both came out each in one piece!
I rarely do fashion posts (I’m a little camera shy and it’s just so much easier to take food pics), but before I sent this piece off to my sis, I had to get some shots of it!
I thought the purse would pair well with a white cotton summer dress and sandals or boots, but it would go equally well with darker fall tones.
