    I love this! The faux leather gives it a more professional look instead of using fabric. Was it hard to sew?

      Hi, no the bag wasn’t difficult to sew and the handles came with the holes already punched out, so just some strong thread and a good needle to go through all the layers. It was a bit fiddly to start with, lining up the inner facing and outer parts of the handle, but once you got going it was pretty straight forward. Have a go!
