I really liked it, plus I saw that it was so easy to make!
I have some artificial leather left from my father's job, so I thought, why not trying it? :)
It was very easy and quick to make.
There is no need to sew and I am sure that anybody can do it!
This is the result!!!
The only "problem" (for me), is that it turned out quite small...I like big bags so I wish it was bigger.
Maybe I will try to make a bigger version one of these days.
Step 1: What you need
- Artificial leather (or any kind you like)
- bag handle
- leather hole punch
This way you can make marks in the back without ruining it.
Draw a circle on it, with a diameter of about 54cm (21.25 inches).
I used a plate as guide to make a bigger circle, but you can use whatever method you prefer.
Cut the circle.
I know it may sound weird now, but this will be your bag! :D
This way you will have 8 lines and 16 sections.
Now starting from the circumference of the circle measure 4 or 5cm (1.96 inches) on every line and draw a mark: that's where you have to make holes using your leather hole punch.
I made them 5cm distant from the border of the circle, but after I finished to make my bag, I thought that 4cm would have probably been better, so it's up to you.
