The completed purse is light in weight, flexible and sturdy enough to last through many years of use. Matching belt with matching leather covered buckle to complete the set.

The Extended part which the hat hangs on is 8 to 9 oz. belt shoulder, cut to shape and wet molded over a container - covered with cling wrap - which originally had hot chocolate mix in it.  Then this part is also fastened in position with those little brass nails. Overall dimensions are 9" X11" with 6-1/2" extending to hold my hat. I'll do an article on this project for the LC & SJ in the near future.
      7. Day timerDaytime InsidesDaytime Insides #2 - Here are three shots of the Organizer/Notebook I made for myself and for my May/June, 2000 LC&SJ article. I'll be using it as an Order-Receipt book and also as a Trip Record Book while traveling to the Trade Shows. I have made custom forms for these and the photos show the Order-Receipt books inserted. The leather covers for these were added after the article was completed so they don't appear in the article. Photos in the article are black and white. The cover design is done on both front and back and is modified from pictures in an old 1950's vintage purse instruction book with my style of leaves and stems added. The design is done on both front and back. Inside there are double pockets on both sides with the added 'fly leaf' section with calculator, pens and business card pockets. The lining, pockets, edge binding and zipper pull are whiskey color kangaroo. The tooling back is 4/5 ounce Wickett & Craig tooling cowhide.
