  1. I see, very interesting. I'll think about this option. Thank you very much.
  2. Both ideas are good, how do you glue the lining to the bottom? Applying spray glue?
  3. I used a special cardboard called lefa cardboard glued at the bottom of the bag but it's glued to the outer skin as you say. My problem is with the lining, how to make the bottom of the lining heavy enough so it stay at the bottom.
  4. Here's the first bag I did, I want to follow the same pattern except for the lining. https://imgur.com/a/cLtmBiW
  5. Hello, I am planning to do a weekender bag with fabric and leather, I already did one a few years ago but I am not 100% happy with it and I found a nicer fabric. This time I also want to improve the lining as the one I did is baggy at the bottom of the bag, so I was looking at this video as an example but it not 100% clear,maybe you can help me to understand. She make like a 3 pieces construction. The bottom and each side. The bottom is a rectangle with a doble layer of fabric and these layers are just glue together, is that right?
  6. Where can I buy horse hide? There are just a few listing on ebay. Is Upholstery leather ok for a jacket?
  7. Hello, I found a person that can make leather jacket in my city so I started looking for a jacket I like on the internet and I found this one, so I'd like to know which leather is this. Is tt horse leather? It look so soft. Link to ebay listing
  8. Here's the final result. I went a bit too far playing with eyelets, 8 instead of 9 would have be good enough but that's ok.
  9. That's an idea but then I would have to stitch, it would be more complicated.
  10. Hello, I'd like to modify these shoes I don't use a lot and I'd like to remove the velcro closing sytem and install those "metal rings" to use laces instead. Question: after removing the velcro system there will be some small holes from the stitches on the shoes, is there any product that I could use to make those holes less visible?
  11. Thanks, I picked 4mm first but it was too heavy so I switch to 2mm and it is perfect.
  12. Here's the final product, waxed and with Lefa cardboard at bottom (which is the equivalent to texon I guess)
  13. Here's the almost finished product. waxing is the final step. There are some flaws here and there but minimal, the rolled handles are a bit on the large side but not that much, first rolled handles I make. I am quit happy with the bag and also with the learning process. The bottom of the bag is soft, that's not a problem but I wonder which material should I use if would want to make it hard, like in this video at 4'31. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aANdScynqlA Pictures:
  14. Here are some new pics. I used those snaps, one on each corner, on the inside lining and outer and it gives the lining a flat apparence which works fine for me.
  15. That tool from elfitakorea is very interesting but it would only work for small objects. I live in an appartement and what I do is as someone said above, not to use the maule before 11:00am and not after 19:00pm. I don't use granit but a block of hard plastic that I put on my legs when seated to hammer. Also I have found that depending on where I am seated in the room the noise change a bit, same thing with the angle the maule hit the tool you're using. Sometimes I put all my stuff into a bag and I go outside and sit on a bench to hammer, then I come back home to stitch.
