hello, I would like to deepen my knowledge on the sponsorship of handbag. Currently, I am creating my own patterns, but I find it difficult to predict adjustments, number of pieces, etc. Can someone help me?

All I can say is to watch YouTube like it isn't going to be there tomorrow. Dieselpunk.ro is a great resource for bags and his patterns are pretty cheap. You will likely need to make a few off of some patterns before you start making your own so you can see where the "gotchas" are and such. He isn't the only resource but he is great for bags and patterns.

Also, if you pick apart all the different threads here on LW you will see a lot about lining and stuff as well, which Tony doesn't have a lot of info on.

Another also, keep asking questions on here too.

You might do some research in handbags. There are many books available that you might take a look at. Amazon has books on making handbags as do many fabric stores. Your local library or community college could also be good resources.

The best advice I might offer is to make a prototype out of something in cardboard or fabric before you sacrifice some leather for the project.
