Boot Bag

Rootin' Tootin' Boot Bag
$125

The creativity of artists always amazes me. This bag and the one below were on display in Wyoming Wool Works, the site of a recent Fiber Guild meeting. 

The tag on the bag reads, "Inspired by her love of the 'Old West,' designer Jill Judd converts the beautifully decorated tops of vintage cowboy boots into completely original handbags. The myriad of shapes, styles, colors, and stitching patterns of the boot tops ensures that every single bag is a one-of-a-kind piece with its own individual character - a mirror of their historic lives! Each bag is hand laced and adorned with braided leather handles. They are then accented with custom-made sterling silver conches for a distinctly 'western' flavor or with vintage jewelry pieces for a 'cowboy glitz' appeal. Refreshingly unique, Rootin' Tootin' Boot Bags appeal to as many different customers as there are boots, and they are as full of robust character and rich legend as are the cowboys and cowgirls of the west that literally once wore them!  -- Lapine Leather, Dubois, WY"

The bags were cute and would be wonderful conversation starters, but they are definitely out of my price range.

  4. I think we need to get our creative juices flowing and make some money. Just kidding as I do not have time to finish what I have started.

  8. Yes, they are rather expensive. If you could find a used pair from a thrift store you could probably make your own pretty easily. But I know, it's kind of against the idea of the whole thing, but to me recycling is recycling.
