So, the story goes:

Yesterday I saw an amazing beat up brown leather couch on the side of the road near my house. It was still sitting there by nighttime, so I decided that I'd have my way with it. Armed with a utility knife and black clothing, I went out at 11pm and tore that couch to shreds. And TOTALLY GOT CAUGHT by the owners. Gah. She told me that their new puppy ruined it, that they'd had the couch for ten years, and it didn't have bedbugs. I'm not sure what she thought I was doing... But to thank her for the beautiful leather, I'm going to anonymously drop off this clutch I whipped up when I got home. Maybe she won't like to wear something made out of her old couch, but it's fucking awesome, if you ask me.

What started as a chance meeting between me and a discarded couch has now turned into a viral sensation!
