I wanted a satchel but I couldn’t find one that was a design I liked, a colour I liked and that was real leather too so I decided to make one! First I made a mock-up of the bag in paper so I could see what size I was going to make it. Then I disassembled the pieces and used them as a template to cut the leather. This bag is lined in leopard satin. It took about 18 hours to make. This bag is 100% leather and my own design.
100% leather, solid brass rivets, 3 solid brass buckles, solid brass “D” rings and thread.
