    Your tobacco bags are great…I especially like the blue one ;), although they are all great, but I like the colour. It think they are very practical. While I was smoking I was always carrying tobacco, the paper and the filters in a small bag which was always full of the remains of tobacco ;))). But I was obviously too lazy to sew sth like this. I would like to ask you something…maybe it’s a bit silly…but who cares. When you are working with leather do you use the same needle that you use on the other materials….or do you use different thickness? Or do you use anything different than usual….? This question is because I heard that while working with leather some parts of sewing machine (like needle and the pedal…and I don’t know which more parts) have to be some extra parts? And because I haven’t worked with leather jet I don’t know is it true? I hope the question is not to silly…and thank you for you answer!!! ;)))))))

      Hey… when working with leather i usually use a leather-needle. the thickness depends on the strength of the leather! if your leather is soft you can use a thinner one! you can also use a leather-foot that is supposed to prevent the foot from sticking to the leather…but the cheep ones aren’t really working and the good ones are toooooo expensive…hope that helps!

    I have no idea what a tobacco pack is for or how it looks inside, but I love the outer look of these!

    Love it! I don’t like smoking, but if they have to, then do it with the style. Please, please, please some instructions! :)

      Hey…. that’s exactly what i think about smoking!

      instructions: just take a common tobacco pack and outline the size of it. (i took the biggest one, so that it would work for all sizes!) then cut the leather and fold it like the original pack. find a button you like or sew a symbol on the front (this is the part that holds the leather strap!) and your done!
