DIY leather strap tote

 Today's post has me especially excited.
A while back I made a bag for a friend and I decided to share my tutorial with you. You can find it (and me) over at Sew Sweetness - YAY for guest blogging :) 
Pop on over for the full (free) leather strap tote tutorial. 
If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment below or on the post over at Sew Sweetness and I will try my best to give you some good answers.

This is what it looks like:

Zoom out some more.

There is also some more exciting news. 
I told you a while back that a friend and I will be starting a business.

The name is Pickalilly. (I LOVE that name)

The business, for now, will mainly be focused on baby accessories and clothing. My friend, whom I had the pleasure of teaching with for a few years, is starting things up from TODAY! I will be joining her from June 1st this year (when my travels are over.) Here is the website - go take a look :)

And if you want updates on what's happening then here is the Pickalilly facebook page.
 For now purchases can only be made by South Africans, but give us time (its only day 1) we will spread out soon :)
