Great looking project.
Love the simple look of it! Thanks a lot for the thorough tutorial!
Very nice. What’s the cloth tape for?
Hi Zach, The cloth tape is to stabilize the seam. It reduces how much the seam could stretch over time.
Thanks for the tutorial. It inspired me to get tools for this project.
Where do you buy your leather? I’m having trouble finding a good source.
I purchase a lot of my leather from higher end fabric stores or large fabric warehouses in the United States (not sure how things are outside the US). Some fabric store chains in the US have small pieces of leather for sale that work for wallets and small bags. A quick online search for “leather hides” brought up many places where you can purchase leather online. Stores that specialize in upholstery fabrics may also carry leather.
Is there any way I can get the pattern that you used?
I like your thoroughness, I would like to have a zippered top and a lining with divisions– any way you could upgrade your design to include a top zipper and at least a basic lining? Thanks.
Thanks for sharing such a lovely bag here. Liked it a lot.

Beautiful bag, Carly. Thank you for sharing. Which measurements did you used for the bag? I really love the proportion!
