My store bought black leather bag was worn out so I made a copy because I still liked the design and the size. This was one of my first leather bags I made.
Sewing is done with a commercial sewing machine and regular sewing machine needles.
The size of this bag is wide 13,5 inch ( 34,5 cm) height 12,5 inch ( 32 cm) bottom depth is 4 inch ( 10 cm) and the shoulder-strap is 45 inch long ( 112 cm)
I used a printed sturdy leather , several interfacings , lining leather to reinforce the bottom, leather glue , leather tape to reinforce the zipper opening, medical paper tape to secure the patterns on the leather while I did cut the leather with a Kai cutter. A hammer for flatten the seams.
Hansel leather interfacing which can be fused on a low temperature.
Front side zippered pocket.
The inside pockets, one welt pocket with a snap, one zippered pocket, pen holder, cell phone holder and key ring holder.
The dark green lining is interfaced to give it some more durability, because this lining is not a sturdy bag lining.
The bag closure is done by 2 bag snaps and a piece of Velcro which acts as a pickpockets alarm.
Added a bag stop at the inside center part of the shoulder bag so the strap stays on my shoulder .
