This week's Corner View topic is to show something in our home that has been repurposed (changed from it's original use, to serve a new purpose. Since I've been using it quite a bit this week, I will share with you my way of organizing sewing and crafting supplies.

I have made little things out of leather in the past, like boots and coats for the bendy dolls or helping Blaze make his moccasins, but this was the first thing I have made for me. I bought two pieces of deer hide at the Medieval Faire and spent the past few days turning it into a messenger bag.
I completed it Monday:
