Cut out A and B 1 x each from Vliesofix (no allowances) and iron onto the leather. Pull off the Vliesofix, iron on the cotton fabric and trim.
Fold piece A 0.5 cm (1/4 in) to inside and press, stitch on zip fastener. Fold piece B 0.5 cm (1/4 in) to inside and press, stitch on zip fastener from the right side, close to the edge.
Cut out piece C 1 x from Decovil and iron onto leather. Fold approx. 1 cm (3/8 in) to inside and carefully fix in place with leather glue.
Place the leather piece on it and topstitch all around, close to the edge. Now carefully trim the leather and punch the holes.
Repeat steps 4 – 5 for piece D. Punch double hole, position buckle and stitch. Position loop and stitch.
Fold pack right sides together and stitch the curve. Pin pieces C and D to the sides and stitch the seams. Now use bias binding to finish the seam allowances.
