A few days ago I saw a similar bag around the internet.
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)
  • ribbon*
  • bag handle
*I used an elastic ribbon cut from a t-shirt (!!) so I didn't really measure it, but if you use a regular one, I believe you should cut it at least 80cm long (31.49 inches).

  • Ruler
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • leather hole punch

Step 2:

Picture of
Take your leather and lay it on a table with the front side facing the table.
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

Step 3:

Draw 2 perpendicular diameters on your leather circle, then divide the 4 sections in half drawing other diameters, and finally, divide them in half again.
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.

I didn't buy it actually, I just got it from an old bag I had...when you buy a handbag they usually include the longer handle that you can keep or remove. I used one of those. I think they are easy to find anyway, even online.

I'm glad you like it :)
