Benesov, Czech R...
My leather bag made out of an old coat is finished after a long time. Honestly, I´m not sure I like it! It´s kind of brutal and rough… which sometimes isn´t a bad thing, but I´m not sure about this case :). I´m a bit dissapointed, but at the same time I´m proud of it. It´s huge, sturdy, with many pockets (one of them big zippered inside). The adjustable strap was salvaged from a different (damaged) bag. Sewing this bag was quite nerve wrecking, as my poor sewing machine had trouble getting through the thick leather.
