I absolutely love the richness and tradition behind embroidered Suzani textiles. The colorful, needlepointed fabric dates as far back as the late 18th century and was often exchanged like currency or used as dowry payments in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries. In case you’re in the market for authentic Suzani, eBay has a huge selection with great prices. You can thank me later!

Inspired by Stella McCartney‘s iconic Falabella bag, I whipped up a chain trimmed leather sleeve perfect for my favorite gadget! This tutorial is a great way to learn a super simple hand stitching technique which can also then be applied to other leather wares. Have I piqued your interest yet?

So . . . where shall we go?
