<p>HI, This is ssooooo cool. PLEASE help with a pattern or at least dimensions?</p>
very nice and elegant! what's the metal item in step 5?
<p>This bag has such clean lines which makes it look very elegant. How are the snap buttons holding up? The have to deal with a great deal of load if you put anything heavy in the bag</p>
<p>If you can save your pattern as a PDF or write the dimensions down (on the template and just take a new photo), many people would try making this. It looks really nice!</p>
<p>pattern would be great!!! </p>
<p>Thank you so much!!</p><p>This is a very simple pattern. ^^</p>
<p>Where can i find the pattern?</p>
<p>Posted a pattern. Please print and use. ^^</p>
<p>No, you posted a photo of the pattern, that is not a pattern. There are no size dimensions shown on the photo so to a novice, the photo would be of no help.</p>
Thank you^^
<p>I really like this bag, it is simple yet elegant and very functional. It is an example of straightforward and uncluttered design at it's very best. Well done indeed.</p>
<p>Thank you very much. I like this bag too ^^, I am using a laptop bag.</p>
that looks so nice!<br>how did you finish the stitching?
<p>You can finished with fire. ^^</p><p>Thank you!!</p>
I should have said sewing, not stitching I guess ;)
<p>hi! any chance you could upload a template for this awesome briefcase, love it!</p>
<p>Okay, Thank you so much.</p>
What was the name of the tool you used to make multiple holes really quickly?
<p>If you mean the tool used to punch multiple lacing holes at once, it's called a lacing chisel. You can find them online or in stores like Tandy's leather. </p><p><a href="http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/en-usd/search/searchresults/88044-06.aspx" rel="nofollow">http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/en-usd/search/searchresults/88044-06.aspx</a></p><p>Or just go onto <a href="http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com" rel="nofollow">www.tandyleatherfactory.com</a> and search chisel, there's a big selection.</p>
