Thanks!!

finally managed to get the bag turned right side out. Also decided to do a stiffener and lining on the inside, made from thin kitchen cutting mat. The lining material is some bonded Burberry cotton canvas I had left over from another project. Now, just need to stitch the zip in :blink:

Awesome! It looks killer! Looking at that color, I think if you were able to pipe the sides instead of a lap seam, and the bottom like it is, in a contrasting blue color it would just pop. That's just a thought for another project, but what you have looks super cool!

Thanks mate! Great idea on the contrasting piping, too!

Very nice.  Are you hand sewing for a specific reason?  What size (MM) is your pricking iron and thread?

Thanks! Yes, the main reason being I don't have a suitable sewing machine for this work (although I do for garment sewing), and also because I really enjoy the 'zen' of hand stitching. I'm using 0.6mm tiger thread, with size 004 needles, and about 8-9 spi (will have to check the exact mm size of my pricking iron). I have used 0.8mm tiger thread with 002 needles with the same pricking iron on another project, but for aesthetics I prefer the thinner thread on this one.

So, my Harley was a-callin' (sunny, 82F and a light breeze.....no choice really), didn't make as much headway sewing as I wanted to this weekend, but here are a couple of update pics.  Also ran out of thread with just half of the zip to go, naturally. Now waiting for my package from Egyptian thread :(

Minor correction, that would be Egyptian Leather, on Etsy apparently  I just tracked them down.

Ritza 25 Tiger Thread by EgyptianLeather on Etsy

 

 

Thanks @TheCyberwolfe, beat me to it :)  They are a great supplier, and do shorter lengths and samples if you don't need a 100s of meters.. .

Stitching all done! All that's left now is to braid a small zipper pull, but in the meantime, here are some pics.  Included a gratuitous shot next to my buddy for size comparison  :rolleyes:
