The Hague, Nethe...
I’ve made this bag before in canvas (view the tutorial here), but now I turned it into a leather version. The good thing is that the bag has two pockets now, a tiny one on the outside and a larger one on the inside. It’s a very minimalist, yet practical design, because the bag closes automatically when you pick it up.
Since leather is so expensive I use reclaimed leather from a furniture maker nearby. I actually like it that the leather shows variation in color and texture.
And if you want to know more about working with eyelets: I wrote a blogpost about it today.
