Made this out of a thrift store leather skirt after being inspired by a Burda how to make a passport holder from a leather jacket. I ripped out the lining and quilted it using some extra batting in my craft room. I turned the skirt’s waistline into the strap. I also made it a few inches wider in hopes of having it fit my laptop, but no dice. Still nice, though! It was my first time working with leather, so some of the stitching is not as great as it should be.
