Step 1: Tools and Materials

To make this bag you gonna need:

Leather working tools - https://amzn.to/2tkyhPt

Leather dye - https://amzn.to/2tfhCMX

Leather finish - https://amzn.to/2tkz3fl

Chicago screws - https://amzn.to/2JVE44I

Snaps - https://amzn.to/2JSKHoL

Step 2: Make a Pattern

First you should make a pattern for the bag out of paper. Prototyping out of paper will save you time and expensive materials. If you like the shape of my bag you can download and print the pattern I made.

Step 3: Cut the Leather

Now let's cut all the leather pieces using the pattern we made before.

You will need to use grooving tool to skore the leather where it should bend.

Step 4: Assembling and Finishing

Before you apply the leather dye make sure to assemble the bag and dry fit all the parts together.

Use the leather dye of your choice to give the bag some colour. I'm using the Dark Brown colour from Firebing's

Use Chicago screws to put the bag together.

Use Snaps to close the bag.

Step 5: Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

And bam! the awesome leather bag is done! No sewing no hustle. Just pure joy of making!

    Question 1 year ago

    Love the look of this, and the simplicity of the design, i just wanted to ask how you had attached it to the bike?

    It looks like you have a few straps in the image after dying the leather, did you use these and some snaps to attach it to the bike?
