black leather bag

My leather bag made out of an old coat is finished after a long time. Honestly, I´m not sure I like it! It´s kind of brutal and rough… which sometimes isn´t a bad thing, but I´m not sure about this case :). I´m a bit dissapointed, but at the same time I´m proud of it. It´s huge, sturdy, with many pockets (one of them big zippered inside). The adjustable strap was salvaged from a different (damaged) bag. Sewing this bag was quite nerve wrecking, as my poor sewing machine had trouble getting through the thick leather.

    Be proud. It’s awesome. We often get too close to our own work. You will love in a few days.

    Well, so I took some time to make the bag a bit smaller – not so long (deep). And it´s much much better now!

    Thank you all! I´m not sure if I want to make the bag a bit smaller… but I´m very lazy, so it will maybe stay the same :).
