I wanted a leather backpack but didn’t find any to my convenience, so i made this one. I spent more time imaginating the “architechture” than doing it, but still it took me a lot of time!
It is strong, big (for a lot of books) but doesn’t close so well when it is full… First try! ;)
An old leather jacket from the 80’s + an old yellow plastic rain coat (for the inside) + a dark red piece of felt (new) and some big needles to sew leather
