The bigger bag is made of upholstery material as it was the only fabric i could find at the time that was durable enough for its purpose (and still colourful).
For the little bag the lace and leather idea came to me as i was wondering around the haberdashery department of spotlight and decided i wanted to soften the look of the black leather that i had bought. The zip was meant to fit across the back of the bag but due to a change in the dimensions i decided to fit it differently. I decided to add a shoulder pad to the strap for comfort.
