Hello Everyone,

I am very new both here and to leatherworking. I was tasked with making a leather tote bag for my sister for christmas. It was the only thing she requested so I felt obligated to take a crack at my first bag.

I used:

5oz Dublin Horween Chromexcel

8oz Buffalo for the straps

Copper rivets

1mm Cigar Tiger thread all stitches hand punched and saddle stitched

There was quite the learning curve with the designing and assembly of this bag, I already know of a few things (mostly surrounding order of operatioins) that I will do different. Any advise is welcome since I hope to improve to the level of the things I see here!

Edit: These are the only pictures I have from the build process, I have asked my sister for some pictures of it after a few weeks of use but nothing yet.
