Birthday bag. Check. Here are some unofficial pictures.
I would have finished this bag ages ago if it wasn’t for this whole handle/strap mess. Things just didn’t work out the way I had planed on paper (story of my life). The handles were too long, then too short, then too stiff. I made it work. But, then, where do I put these straps? This leather is so beautifully soft that it just melts onto the table, but I want it to stand up!
Regardless of the setbacks I think it turned out pretty well. This black leather is to die for. I loved every minute of sewing it!
