Not sure if this will be the right fit, but you might consider buying "The Art of Making Leather Cases, Vol. 1," a classic leather crafters' book, by Al Stohlman. It is available from Amazon for around $20.

Whilst the above book is excellent for 'hard' cases and bags I'd advise you to get 'Handmade Leather Bags & Accessories' by Elean 'Birdy Teacher' Ho

It has several styles of tote type bags, patterns and instructions on how to make them

I've read that book in my local library. I'd not recommend it to ANYONE. It assumes the reader knows too much plus all the projects are designed to be completed on an expensive heavy duty sewing machine. Not everyone can afford a sewing machine which costs £2500 plus
