Terrible because my sewing machine decided to stop working on leather and I had to sew the entire thing by hand :C So, now you know why I did not update last week.
The blue suede is from an old jacket (of course ;)) and the multi colored suede cords are from endlesssleather.com. I also used my hole punch.
As usual I used A4 paper as a pattern (I did add some extra cm for the fold at the top).
Like the black drawstring bag I did some weeks ago I had to use two smaller pieces for the bag’s front and back.
I used the same stitch as this tutorial on hand sewn buttonsholes use. The fringes I added made the bag sturdy enough even though I couldn’t use my machine to sew it.
After folding down the top I cut out holes for the drawstring and stitched them.
Sewing the shoulder strap and attaching it to the bag was the hardest to do by hand. But it worked out fine in the end.
I have more leather bag projects planned, I bought a new leather needle for my machine yesterday. I hope that solves my problems…
