Which One is Handmade?

Need this?  Click here!
Lots of voters last week, and 81% of you got it right!  I must admit that I love the shark pot holder.  This mass-produced item is available all over the place.  Manufactured by DCI, it ranges in price from $8 - $15.  The bumble bee pot holder is just one of the many selections made by ScrapHappieAZ out of Gilbert, Arizona.  Her shop on Etsy is full of delightful things including these wonderful pot holders, aprons, cup cozies and organizers.  I have sent a few of her items as gifts and can personally attest to the quality, great customer service and quick shipping.
So, here we go with quiz #3...  Which one is handmade?  You can vote using the poll in the sidebar to the right!

Item #1 
These wallets measure 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" when closed. Natural cowhide is tooled and dyed, lined, and assembled with rich calfskin lace.

Top grain leather lining in rich brown with removable photo / card case, bill compartment with divider, and card pockets .
Cash and cards for display only.

Price: $75.00

Item #2 
A classic redefined. Created to hold all your essentials, the hand-tooled cutouts on the front make this wallet anything but ordinary. Paired with the velvety cow hide, created with a brown/cream pony pattern, you'll wake up your wardrobe with this novel wallet. 

Crafted from rich chocolate brown leather, cream leather peeks out from the cutouts at the bottom front. Studs decorate the front for another layer of modern style. Designed to keep you organized, the interior features two clear credit/ID card slots, 10 credit/ID card slots, one zip pocket for coins or other small items, and three full-size slots for paper currency or receipts.

Additional Information:
Snap closure. Antiqued silver hardware. Measures 7.5"L x 1"W x 4"H. Made of leather with cotton interior.  Use leather protector for care.

Price:  $67.25
So.....  which one is handmade?  Voting will close next Sunday, March 18, 2012.


  1. I guessed #2 only because the stitching was not quite as even...

  2. Oh… I voted for number 1… because the stitching is even… lol

    Great fun Sandi! Super idea!

  3. For me number 1 too. And yes, also because of the stitching. :D
