Excellent workmanship on the bag! Nice leather! Do you mind sharing where you purchased it? Hopefully it is an online source!

Thank you! I used scrap leather pieces that I picked up at a fabric shop in North Carolina earlier in the year. I buy larger hides from the local Tandy Leather shop here. You can also purchase from them online :)

Really impressive. Is this your first leather bag? Did you buy the clasp on the front? Did you take the other class on Craftsy about making leather bags? Really nice!!!!

Thank you! This was my first leather hand bag of this style with a recessed zipper. I have made bags/totes/wallets etc with leather before. I actually made the flower on the pocket flap out of scrap leather. I had to cover up the snap that I inserted. It's covering up my mistake but I really like how it turned out! I just recently purchased the leather bag making course on Craftsy but haven't even watched it yet :)
