What are you most proud of? The topstitching was really hard, and in most places it looks okay.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you design your own leather bag, try to keep the lines straight. Sewing rounded seams in leather was really hard.

I love this bag. What is your finished size?

Nice. This tends to be the kind of shape I like also. What kind of strap/handle did you go with? As with driving curves can be a challenge. Kudos!

Hi! Beautiful bag. I'm interested in taking the class, but I don't have an industrial sewing machine, is it necessary?
