This was a fun, yet mind boggling project for me. I haven't worked much with lining things other than a notebook holder I made. I think I have finally learned my lesson as to using a material of sorts as lining vs leather. The final result is amazing, but I must admit it give me trouble every time. I think it is because when you have to "finish" the lacing, it is much harder to come up through the leather and material vs leather on leather after it has been cemented. I am very happy with the final result. The pattern called for 5-6 or 7-8 oz leather I can't remember, but I used 9-10 oz leather because that is what I had sitting around. No laughing at my holes on the bottom! I had a heck of a time with those:) It is lined with the material you see it sitting on in the pics.

Is the artwork yours? I really like the strap stamping and floral on the front. Nice work.

I wish Murray. The floral is a pattern that comes with the pattern I downloaded. The butterflies are mine :) Not that the butterflies being mine says anything agains that floral pattern. I had to "girl" it up just a little more than flowers. What goes better with flowers more than BUTTERFLIES.

Very good. I like the mix of the floral carving and the butterflies in color, it looks very sharp.

It looks great
Now that you struggled with the first one, the next will be easier.

Very nice Renee. For what it's worth I see a lot of things about this bag that you've improved on since doing that notepad holder.... the lacing looks neater, the tooling looks good, and you definitely seem to have gotten the hang of resisting & antiquing. Not that the notepad holder didn't look great, just that I can see visible progress in your work from that project to this one.

Did you glue your lining in before stitching?

Cj-Yes I too noticed the stitching and resisting better. The lace this time is the imperial (still cheepo stuff lol) as to where last time is was even worse (the suede that snaps every five minutes. Thanks :)

I have the pattern and will see if I can get on my own laptop later to upload it. I woke up this morning to one mad virus! Scanning it now. If I can't the pattern is on the Tandy LLL site as the "market place tote/handbag". You will want to take it to a print shop because the pdf is like 76 pages long if you print from home and the giant puzzle stinks!

Yes, I glue the lining before I lace. That is why it is so much harder to pull fabric from the leather as opposed to pulling leather apart from leather. The fabric is not so strong.

If you don't get the nippers to punch the bottom. You can do it pretty easy by putting a piece of 2x4 in a vise and using that to back up the leather when you punch with your chisel. I have used a piece of PVC pipe in a vise also but the wood was better.
