Benesov, Czech R...
I made my first leather bag! I made it out of old leather pants my friend gave me. It took me a lot of time to make it, but it was so worth it (I think… let´s see how I will like it while wearing ;). I was inspired by reMade USA, mainly their Ashbury bag and rennes, mostly by this design. In the end I combined both designs :). I wanted to make really practical bag with sturdy metal zipper, adjustable strap, zippered pocket inside and short handles. I would probably like it to be bigger, but the amount of material was limited. My husband helped me with the rivets (I love them!). The colour is more adequate in the greener photos (it´s more green than gray). I love this bag :).
