Cylinder Bag




Introduction: Cylinder Bag


I made a simple and pretty little bag. I used a machine, but hand sewing is enough so let's take it step by step.

Step 1: Design&Sketch

Imagine and sketch the final image.

Step 2: Make a Pattern

When I cut a circle, I used a special tool. This is called the Circle Cutter.

Step 3: Bond the Bottom

Provides full bonding to ensure floor strength

Step 4: Sew the Bottom and the Sides of the Bottom

Sew the leather and the thin side strip

Step 5: Combine Body Parts

Combine both sides with the inside facing outward.

Step 6: Turn Over

Turn over inside out

Step 7: Sew the Bottom and Body

Fold the top part and sew the bottom just in time.

Step 8: Make a Lining

Use patterns to create lining

make a little smaller than leather

Step 9: Make a Short Strap

Bond the whole thing and fold it

Step 10: Make a Long Strap

Bond the whole thing and fold it and sew it.

Step 11: Sew the Strap and Body

The tips join the body through hand sewing.

Step 12: Combine Metal Ring and Strap

Sewing the ends only and joining the center with rivets.

    Looks great. And given how expensive purses are (I've bought my mom, sisters and wife plenty) it's even a good investment of your time. How many hours does making one take you? 2 or so?

    Hello, I took 2-3hours top maybe. For me, when my wife wanna buy something, I just tell her not to buy it. Like this : I could make it for you baby so dont buy it . So it is a good investment, you’re so right! XD
