  1. I finished this up about two years ago. It was my first effort to do a large piece like this. I love the way it has broken in and started to patina.
  2. This is my take on a traditional dual strap satchel. I used Horween's Chromexcel, Bucanneer and Casco horse front. The bag is hand stitched with brass and copper rivets and the straps were sewn on my CB3200. It has a removable pouch that can fit small items or a small tablet.
  3. Finished this up on the weekend. Tasman Crazy Horse hide, hand stitched with #207 bonded poly thread , 5 spi. I will definitely do another with some slight tweaks.
  4. 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.
  5. Here is the 2nd attempt at making a bag. I am a little embarrassed by how long it took.
  6. Just finished this briefcase and thought I'd share. Purpleheart and aluminum handle with a cotton vintage cloth lining. I tried to keep this one crisp and clean with as little fuss as possible. It's a lovely balanced bag to hold. The handle pivots very freely on the bag so no matter how you hold or wear it , it always stays vertical. By swinging the handle towards the back it creates a clever stand for the briefcase. Comments and criticisms are welcome.
  7. It has been a while since I poster here since I have mostly been focusing on wood working. The other day I decided to do a little crossover project and make a wood and leather messenger bag. The gussets are made out of Ambrosia Maple. The leather is 5/6oz. Overall dimensions are roughly 12x15. This is a project for me, but I've already had a lot of interest in it. I may make a few more.
  8. Hello All - For any bag/briefcase makers out there I'm in the market for something I can use in the business world. I'd like to buy and/or have something made that can be proudly taken to business meetings but also has a somewhat casual appearance. If anyone is interested can you please message me or respond to this post? Thanks!

  10. This is my latest bag. It's been about a year in the making as I had to put it aside for client orders. Finally took the time to finish the handles and put it all together. Fully turned briefcase with English suit wool accents. Entirely hand stitched as always. I made the handles out of solid brass and wrapped them with leather for comfort. One exterior pocket on the gusset for pens and such and one on the body for a phone or a pair of gloves. I had thought about building it with piping, but I'm glad I didn't on this one. I like that it's clean and understated. Comments and critiques welcome.
  11. Satchel for MacPro 13'. See my videos: Making a wallet: Making a watch strap:
  12. Hi Everyone First off thank you all who contribute to this site i have been reading as much as possible to learn and learn i have. I have made two small projects for myself, but now im taking a leap and making my daughter a satchel with a difference and was wondering which leather to use i have only used veg tan leather and done some bad tooling and got some cheap leather to do a dry run for the satchel.. hopefully the pictures turn out ( hard to write and design on a train i can tell you) The satchel is double gusseted, one gusset will have zips either side because inside this compartment will hold chef knives i want the bag to open out for easy access. Will i need to reinforce the bottom of this side too.... So back to the question i have found these leathers which one would be best.. (ps i am in the uk) or send me in the right direction... http://www.uktannery.com/brown-veg-tanned-bridle-leather-hides-34mm-14-sqft-540-p.asp http://www.metropolitanleather.com/Vegetable-Tanned-Leather/Natural-Uncoloured/Natural-Veg-Tan-Craft-Tooling-Shoulder Thank you in advance Sean.
  13. Hey guys! These are a couple recent projects. I made a bag/satchel with one large compartment and a small pocket on the inside, and I made standard passport wallet. Let me know what you think! -Nick
  14. I've been experimenting with some briefcase ideas, incorporating some of my hand-made brass and exotic wood handles and hardware. This one is also lined with an Italian wool men's suit material. Simple single gusset brief, but I've adopted/adapted the rod look from the music breifcases. Great littel bag, and with the brass and Purpleheart handle, it really is nice to carry. Overall I'm quite happy with it, though I think that the leather would be more suited to a turned bag...that'll be next on my list.
  15. Mini satchel bag with one main compartment, one back pocket and two front pockets. Shoudler belt in combination bridle / alcantra suede. Made of 2 - 2.4mm Sedgwick english bridle shoulder for the main parts and for curved parts (gusset, flap corners) colored trough (bridle top finish) 2mm belly. Gussets on front pockets made of 1mm goat skin. Hand stitched with 0.8mm braided polyester thread (aka Tiger thread)
  16. I made a bag for myself a few years back when I first started leatherworking. Ever since, I've gotten a flood of compliments on it. However, once I joined Leatherworker, I got enough better that it has been getting downright embarrassing to get compliments. I always felt the need to say how everything I make now is so much better, really. I decided I was doing a pathetic marketing job, and it was a legitimate business expense to make myself a new bag. Besides, I used scrap pieces left over from other bags, so it's almost free. All hand sewn, 9 oz. Austin leather and stoned oil tanned leather, doubled, for the straps. My new bag: Old bag with the new bag. And then, just for laughs, the sheaths I made for my boys' rubber/plastic practice knives. I've never made a serious sheath before, so these were fun to do. I skimped and made a lot of mistakes, because I'm sure they're going to end up lost or rotting in the rain. Here they are, looking fierce.
  17. Hi there, I wondered if anybody know whether it is possible to get a pattern/template to make a satchel. I have been making journal covers for quite some time now but would like to try some new work. Any advise is greatly appreciated
  18. From the album: A Newbies Progress

    This shows No.4 flaps open! Where this differs over previous bags is the use of a magnetic clasp for the front pocket. The Sam Browne studs used previously just didnt feel right in use.

  19. Howdy fiolks, I am in search of the actual pattern to the satchel bag of an old Harold Arnett Doodle Page. I have the doodle page and it has the carving pattern, but not the satchel pattern. Does anyone have an idea of where to find that satchel pattern? I have combed all through what Tandy has to offer to no avail. Thanks in advance, J
  20. Finished my first proper project as a Christmas present for my girlfriend. Lined with pigskin, found all the stitching quite tiring! It's 10 inches wide so just fits an A5 pad, has a 3-piece gusset, and uses Sam Browne studs to close since buckles seem like a hassle (will see how well these work though...). Had some interest in making more but would have to charge ridiculous money for it to be economical Still all good fun. P
  21. Hi folks, I'm looking for a good pattern for a leather satchel similar to the one in the pic. Does anyone know where I can get something along these lines? Thanks Raven
  22. Hey all; I am new to the forum and to leather work. I posted some pics of presents I made for my kids for Christmas. I still have some finishing to do but not completely sure what to do. On the satchel, I have applied carnauba cream so the finish is a little darker and looks a lot better. I still need to clean up the edges some too. Anyway, feedback and suggestions are always welcome. Thanks
  23. I've been quietly watching and learning from everyone here for over a year and I've finally made something I like enough to share - so thanks to all of you for your ideas and suggestions that you share every day. This is a gift for a friend who is retiring from the military in a month or so. The patches on the front are for units he served in and the ones on the back are places he's been. 12"x16"x4 built from 6/7oz Triple C leather and hand stitched. Please feel free to critique and make suggestions for either design or process improvements.
  24. I've not been around the forum for a few weeks, as its the busy time of year for me (lots of tv ads to make for christmas!), and i've also had a couple of projects on the go. I'd love to hear any thoughts and comments about them…. just click on an image and it will open in the gallery with all the comments i have added have a great christmas everyone! adam
  25. When is the appropriate time to add the resolene? Before or after stitching? I need to apply it but having only used it once, i am unsure when to slap it on! Also this bag will have suede rolled edges around the bag opening, and i dont think the resolene should touch the suede (or is it okay to use on suede?). Should i apply leather balsam before resolene or after? thanks Adam
