This is my first attempt in handcrafting bags (or in any kind of craft work for that matter) , and I'm so proud of this piece. I have searched the inner shops of Chinatown, and was able to find pieces of vintage bronze accessories and yellow capiz-looking square dangles, and I thought that this would fit perfectly on the pattern madebyrae (http://www.made-by-rae.com). I have toiled for 4 nights after work, spending 4 hours each and voila! my first vintage denim buttercup bag! the perfect weekend bag.
