I recently finished up this mini hand bag, approximately 8 x 5 inches. It's made from D'Annonay 'Vocalou' French calfskin from Maverick Leather. The interior is Bordeaux French goat from RMLS. It's got Brio reinforcement by Luigi Carnevali, also from RMLS. It's hand stitched with Amy Roke linen thread. I used 2.7mm (about 10 per inch) Kevin Lee pricking irons. Edges were creased then painted with black Fenice edge paint. The closure flap has a magnet from Buckleguy.

Nice! Beautiful craftsmanship.
Working in miniature is difficult!

I really like how you did the bottom of the gusset.  Are you willing to share how that is done?

Thanks. It's a cool gusset. It's basically a rectangle with legs. Then fold the legs across toward each other, glue and stitch.

 

There's an old post on here by Hunio who goes by Huns now. Study the pictures and you can figure it out. Its also in Ellen Valentine's new book Leatherwork School.
