Gator Belly EmbossedLeather Purse

Found some Italian gator belly embossed leather on sale at Maverick Leather and created this purse. I made two versions with the gator belly “grain” in different directions. Very simple purse to cut and put together. I also included some pig suede also on sale from ML. I think the bright colors really add to the elegant look of the purse.
