The Bucket Bag has a been a fun change of pace from the original Tote. A friend and Saturday Peoples Market neighbor has been working with leather for years and shared her bag design with me. It is clean and simple and highlights the hand stitching, something the Tote does not. The pattern also allows the bag to stand vertically unsupported which is more practical for everyday use and presents better at shows. There are zero obvious drawbacks to the design and many benefits. I will likely be discontinuing the Tote and focus my energy on more progressive and creative projects in the future.
