Hey pretty complex, just saw the zippers. Good job.

Another very lovely bag. Your design elements are so "up scale" looking. Great bag.

Very Good! Good design. Did you add anything between the lining base and the bottom? If so, what is it?

Thank you! Yes, for this bag, I used corrugated plastic that I bought at Staples. They sell it as a DIY sign material. In my more recent bags, I've started using medium-weight buckram that I "fuse" to the bottom leather with strips of 1"-wide 3M 465 transfer tape
