  1. The Great Wave off Kanagawa

    My second iteration for this bag, this time bought by somebody on etsy, the first was a gift for a friend. 2mm italian veg tan for body, 4 mm for strap. Turquoise dye from Fiebings for bodyand Angelus paints for the wave.
  2. purse repair

    Does anyone have any experience with repairing ladies' purses? I've repaired like 5 purses in the last 3 weeks. Mostly by a referral by a shoe repair shop. If anyone has experience with this, what kind of method do you use for charging for repair? What kind of repairs do you do or NOT do and why. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.
  3. Where to find bag closures

    I am trying to find twist lock closure that are more decorative. Almost everything ive been able to find is very basic. Does anyone know where i can find more of a selection besides hearts and butterflys? Thanks for the help Adam
  4. I made a few of these but a fair bit smaller in size just for cards a while ago, and got a request for a larger version so had a bash at doing just that. Still using some pretty fleshy 1.2mm cowhide, so the burnishing didn't go as well as I'd like, but the two-tone stitching still looks good. Adding the card pockets was easy enough, went for a thinner thread so it wouldn't show up so clearly, and actually I think I like this design a little better than the small ones. Any criticism or suggested changes would be welcome!
  5. Second attempt at Messenger Bag for the boss. A lot of experiments with the first one, just a couple on this one. I tried some folded edges, and an interior piece with pockets for cel-phone, pen and keys. This one is a bit wider and deeper. Also went with a different closure than the first. The first one had a magnetic closure, and I hated it. The flap was fairly flexible, and lining up the two parts was difficult. I also stitched the 2-ply strap and flap on this one.
  6. Diaper Bag

    My daughters god mother is about to have her first baby! The one and only thing she asked for from us is a custom, handmade diaper bag! I have not even made a purse before. I told her I will give it a go. So this is where I request any and all help. I have no idea where to start! Is there any patterns for this? She did ask for something with shoulder strap and an outside pocket in the design.

  9. Ok so I spent way too long hand sewing this thing, mostly due to the straps. I'm pretty happy with how it came out though! The leather is a really soft strong navy blue, and the interior is cotton. I'm rather pleased with how well I lined up the pockets, I used up just about all of the fabric I had in this pattern for it.
  10. New project in the works. Have a croc skin I want to make into a purse, but figured the smart thing to do is to make a prototype first out of some rather less expensive pebbled calf, lined with dark chocolate HAAS calf leather (thanks @nstarleather!). I’m heavily inspired by an, ahem, certain luxury goods brand, with hardware from Ohio Bag Supply (through hardware elf). Stitching irons are KS 3.0mm, thread is 532 light brown Lin Cable, and trying out the Renia Aquilim glue for the first time. Bag width is approx. 24cm. Will post more photos as I progress.
  11. Purse lining question

    So, staring a prototype for a small clutch (eventually going to do in croc). Pic below shows outer and lining. I’ve glued the lining completely to the two side gussets, but I’m curious if the lining gets fully glued to the main body, or just close to the edges where it’ll be stitched? Also, how do you account for the turn when the main body is folded; do you simply make the lining shorter than the outer, if you’re not completely gluing the two together? Thanks!
  12. I have an expensive buffalo leather messenger bag, fabric lining, I've used non-stop as a purse since I got it. Last night I slipped on mud and fell into a pond. (Not deep, thank goodness.) It took a couple of minutes to get out. The purse was underneath me and the zipper pockets were open. I poured water and mud out of it even before I got me out of the pond. We wiped off the surface mud as soon as we got inside. I'm not too worried about that -- I've got saddle soaps and leather conditioners and all. Packed the bag full of paper towels and left it in a warm room, out of direct heat currents, overnight. This morning the paper towel's soaked and it's dirty enough I can tell there's mud inside. The fabric for the lining is something the manufacturer gets -- printed with the designer's name. I need to get it clean without doing damage to the leather. Any ideas? I have e-mailed the manufacturer and asked them for help. Thanks!
  13. Hi , all! Part of my plan for 2018 is to spend more time here (and less on Facebook!) sharing our passion for all things leather. So here is my first "share": Check out Chriswdesigns.com. She designs handbags/purses for fabric but uses a lot of vinyl trim and I have made a lot of her patterns using thinner leathers that have been real stunners. I am finishing one this weekend that I will post pics of.
  14. Might never make another like this, but it came out ok I think. About 100 hours labor in this one, Rose Chevre Chagrin on black Wickett and Craig 3-4 oz Bridle leather (from NStarLeather), with 25 linear feet of hand stitching using Pink Fil Au Chinois Lin Cable thread. My hands are tired! YinTx
  15. My first project was making 5 (the 5th wasn't done when I took these pictures) bags as presents for my bridesmaids. It's definately been a process of trial and error but have really been enjoying it so far!
  16. So I made my first purse for a buddies daughters birthday. It's not perfect but I believe she'll love it. Lots of learning from this one
  17. Finally got around to making myself a purse! I made it a bit big, but oh well. It measures 14x14 with 4in gussets. Zipper in the top. Strap pattern is from Don Gonzales and skull pattern is from Ride Hard Leather.
  18. Hello, everyone! My mom is on a trip so I decided to make a surprise for her when she gets back. This purse is from 6 oz. veg tan and lined with suede. The strap is 8 oz. I hand tooled all of it from a pattern in a book. It took me an estimated total of 30 hours from start to finish. Let me know what you think! (My mom hasn't seen this yet!)
  19. Hi all , my latest bag project , comes with a shoulder strap and lined with natural colour pig hide.
  20. I figured I had to try one eventually, and my trophy wife indicated a desire for something small, cross-body, lightweight, that would carry her Ruger LCP, 3 cards, a bit of cash, and keys. Oh, and an i-Phone. Mission accomplished. It took a bit of design, re-design, re-re-design, to make it small and lightweight. In the picture, the front flap looks huge, it's actually the same width as the back of the bag. I'm thinking of tapering it after it makes the top bend. The additional sleeve is very thin, and will carry the cards and cash either in the bag itself, or in the rear pocket. The outer bag stitching got a little erratic on the back side. I didn't particularly like doing the corners on the gusset. I did this type of construction so I could try an inner and an outer join of the gusset to the bag. Basically taught myself as I went along. I did do a small practice corner for the front overlap corner. Good thing, it was a challenge. Okay, I took another picture of the bag, from an angle. It doesn't look at all like the picture above where the flap looks huge, it's actually not bad in person. The flap stays. The boss sez she likes it that way.
  21. Saddle Purse Pattern?

    A friend of mine is requesting a purse similar to this. I realize its a lot of work, and there are techniques I need to learn. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you, so much!
  22. Italian 2 mm and 1 mm leather used, Tan color and diluted chestnut higlighter (I think) for the lighter one. Cutest thing I've ever accomplished.
  23. Here's my first purse I've ever made. I used a kit from Tandy that I picked up at a local used book store. I replaced a few of the parts with better hardware than was included. Thanks for checking it out! Oh and if anyone has any pointers on my tooling I would greatly appreciate it!
  24. I wasn't finding a topic on it already. But I had a question around bag and purse design that I was curious on. This centers on bags in particular that have a fold over flap, and not ones that zip or close at the top. Is there a reason why you would make the back and flap two separate pieces? The designs I've made myself have all kept the back and flap as one single piece. But I see many that are two. Is this just to accommodate using smaller cuts of leather? Thanks, Charlie
  25. Question, I've seen many bags with fringe and the edge is braided or whip stitched all together. I'd like to know how this is done, so the fringe is facing front. I did a sample of how I think it's done but need your knowledge to be sure. So, I have the bags edge (if you will/sample) and glued the fringe in place "wrong side" to the back of the bag. I've braided all three together. The fringe is facing front and there are no unfinished edges - looks good....however, I'd like it to lay flater. A bit of wear and it will hang more relaxed...what's your opinion please & thank you so much in advance.
