This is the second leather bag I made practicing inside zipper pocket, outside pocket and zipper closure. It was a very difficult assembly as there is no bottom/base seam. Finishing top was the most challenging part of the project

Thank you, Don! I learned as much as I can from your old and current blog and class material as well.

Is this a "Tod" bag. I saw your green one. Fabulous. I sketched the bag and have been wanting to make one with longer handles. How wide are your handles?

I love your your bag. The white leather and outside zipper if very functional. Fabulous. Can wait to try this.
