//after looking at leather totes for a long time, after never finding the perfect size or colour or price, I decided to make one myself.
finding the leather wasn't easy, neither was sewing the thick leather with a normal household sewing machine.
anyway, here's how my bag turned out. I'm very happy.
the leather is slightly too soft for this purpose though, so if I ever attempted to make a sturdy leather tote again I would have to go for a waxy, sturdy leather instead of this one.
needless to say, they didn't have that where I bought my leather, but whatever.
tiny, insignificant details.
all that matters is that it looks good, is made by me and fits everything I need. and has a spacious side pocket with a zipper.
what do you think?
