      Thanks for your post. I hope you like the book I’m still making pencil cases at the moment haven’t ventured into making the bags yet. Let us know how you get on.

      They are really easy to make to be honest I had never made one before. But I have just got the bag making bible by Lisa Lam, and one of the first projects was a lined pencil case. I made my own pattern and just played about with design.

      Thanks Mary for your post, I kept the designs really simple as working with leather can be tricky. But I love decorative pattern so you can get a bit carried away.
