Description

Here is my take on the Bags you can make’s The Bag from a Jacket tutorial!
This is such a great tutorial and I totally recommend it! It was easy to follow and my bag turned out just like I wanted. Best thing is it actually helps you draft the bag you want and not just gives you a fixed pattern! Great for a first-timer!

I did not use an old jacket for this (but that is a great idea!), I bought about 0.7 meters of some stiff napa leather in bright orange. I wanted my bag bigger than the one on the tutorial so to fit books, my portable or just anything I needed. I added a bottle holder and some pockets inside.

    I’ve been meaning to make a leather purse for myself, and I had my eye on that “jacket to bag” tutorial. Yours looks great! thanks for sharing the dimension of your leather, it will be helpful.

    Cheers

      Be sure to try that tutorial! You can calculate how much leather you’ll need when deciding on your dimensions and drafting. I actually end up buying too much cus I was afraid I would have to do over some parts since it was my first time with this material! Lucky me it all went so smooth!
