    So cute! And seems not that hard to make one by myself. I am totally gonna try it since I have already ordered my essays at Essays Solutions and I can spend my free time on something I really want to do to have fun.

    This is so stylish, I love it. I’m wondering about efficiency; do you think it would work to iron the leather, webbing, and lining together and then cut all three layers at once? Maybe this method wouldn’t give a nice finish for this project for some reason? Thanks for the project!

    The sewing machine needle has to be one for leather fabrics, correct? Or does it depend on the thickness of the leather used?

      Hi there, I would use a leather needle for sure. The size of the leather needle would also need to match the thickness of the leather. For a soft leather I would use a size 80 or 90 leather needle.
