This is a bag inspired by a bag I saw at a retail store during my holiday in Austria. I really liked the idea of combining leather and upholstery fabric. I embroidered the fabric a while back for another project that I (thankfully) never realised. I used some recycled suede leather, the upholstery fabric, leftover lining, canvas as sew-in interfacing, golden hardware and snap fasteners as closure. It took me a while to get all the topstitching and so on done but I’m really pleased with the result. I’m especially proud of the leather piping and the construction. I just wish I would have been more carefull while cutting out the fabric so that the embroidery wouln’t be off centre but well, can’t change that anymore, can I?
More close-ups, pics of the original bag and infos can be found on my blog:
suede leather, upholstery fabric, polyester lining, canvas, grommets, buckles, snaps, a ton of crafts glue instead of pins to keep everything in place while sewing
