We started off by choosing our leather pieces. For someone who is extremely indecisive, this was a long long process! After much deliberation, I decided on 4 different colours that I hoped would complement each other.
We had the option of embellishing the bag, however I thought I would keep it nice and simple and just did a small design on the back of the bag.
We learnt lots of different techniques and used rivets to attach the strap loops and to make the strap itself. I was surprised at how easy it all was!
I’ve certainly got a lot more confidence now to try sewing with leather, however it could become an expensive side to my sewing!
