Last weekend I made a leather bag! Well, I didn`t exactly do all of it myself. J makes handbags so she helped me out. She did the preparation such as cutting out the leather and making the tassel. First I used adhessive to stick two peices of leather together. Then I used a fork like tool and a hammer to make holes in the leather. Then I hand sewed the leather together trough the holes. It`s kind of hard to explain, I wish I had taken photos during the process of making it.
Anyway once I had done that I used a sewing machine to sew the front panel to the back. It was nice to be back on a sewing machine again! Although there are some differences between a machine for leather and the machines for fabric which I am used to, most of it was very similar. The final stage was turning it the right way round and attaching the strap. It all took about four hours and I am very pleased with the result.
