So on Monday I turned 30; a big day for a small girl. Unlike most women, I was not afraid of this day and in fact, I took it with grace and excitement. It felt like starting a new chapter in my life: Gone is the insecurity of the 20s, student life and worries about the future. At 30, I’m still healthy and look relatively young, know how I am and what I like, got steady income, plenty of good friends around me, and live in one of the greatest cities in the whole world. 30s is the new 20s but with benefits, so really – what’s not to like?

Due to a lack of a smaller handbag which is easy to use and carry through the clubs of Berlin, I decided to design and make one myself. I used the same treated leather as in my previous project, the leather tote, but this time sewing the body of the bag with machine and rest by hand.
The bag features include an elongated flap, simple button clasp closing mechanism, and a double strap with rustic metal d-rings to attach it to the bag. Though this project demanded good nerves and patience (not generally virtues of mine), I am very pleased with the outcome. In action pictures to follow soon.
