I made a bag using the old leather I cleaned in this post. It was pretty hard to make it, the leather is really thick and my sewing machine too weak. I had to hand stitch almost everything, but I still think it turned out OK, it looks a little rough and boho and I like that look. Perfect for summer!
The zipper is from the same jacket as the leather.
Made the bottom sturdy by using an old plastic document holder. Hah!
The lining is also old, probably from the 60’s. I got it from my grandmother years ago.
