Leather handbag






Finally decided to do something with several skins I bought approximately twenty years ago.  Because the leather is soft (probably intended for garments) I stitched it on my domestic machine, although sewing through several thicknesses was a bit tricky, which is why I didn't try to do anything too ambitious when attaching the handles.  The bag is lined with a thickish synthetic fabric and has a zipped compartment and pockets for a mobile phone and a pen. I found the most difficult part of the design was the getting the measurement of the zip stand right.
