What materials did you use? The main colour is made out of a high quality cow hide and the trim is deerskin.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use manageable leather!!

well it looks great! maybe you could find a machine that's more powerful, someone posted that old machines may do better with the leather.

Your bag looks great and was well worth the effort. The hand stitching gives it that special custom look. The lining is rich.

Beautiful job! have you done leather bags before?

Thank you! Yes, I have sewn leather bags before. If you are interested, you can check out my Facebook page (Leather Aspirations). I post all my past projects on there.

I have a vintage Viking that has more piercing power and makes gorgeous stitches in quite thick layers. Much better than my modern Viking
