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.

This is quite inspiring as are all the others. It so happens that this is the style of my favourite bag and I was wondering if I could carry it off! Thanks for the comments re the difficulty of sewing curved seams.

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!
