Treasure is the owner of Nikki&Mallory which specializes in artisan-made leather handbags, accessories, and home décor - plus, she has impeccable style. In her day-to-day life as a designer, she often prefers to skip a bulky purse and carry a slim cell phone bag instead.

i especially liked the design, treasure's narration and the pace of the class. as an experienced seamstress, i would have trimmed the seam corners of the bag a wee bit before turning to the outside to make it a bit easier to push them out. looking forward to playing with this design!
