Leather bag pattern for making a ladies tote with template and build along guide


Instant Digital Download

Hello and welcome to my shop!

• This is an 14 page digital PDF pattern containing a blueprint and instructions meant to guide you through creating a hand crafted leather tote bag as shown in the pictures. It's a commission from my mom actually and I designed and made this bag with all the passion for leather that resides inside me.
• Here's a link for a video in which you may observe the making of the displayed product https://youtu.be/hWV4iJ6ZlFU

• The bag measures about 480 x 320 x 160 mm ( ~19 x 13 x 6 inches ) and has two pockets on the inside and two at the outside.
• It closes using a zipper about 400 mm long ( ~15.7 inches ) and you should make sure you can produce one before buying this bag.
• The straps use two rivets at each end ( eight in total ) for closing around the four 25 mm inner gauge D-rings needed for the project.
• You may use any tool to punch out the stitching holes but the holes are spaced such that you may use a Craftool 3 mm set of prongs to speed things up. Just google 'Tandy 88045-06’ for more info.
• Some parts are stitched using cross stitching so make sure to hit a tutorial before attending this project.

• The pattern is documented in English and contains an introduction, the blueprint and instructions. It's also meant to be printed on US Letter and A4 paper sheets so please make sure you're able to do that before buying.
