I made a bag!

Based off this:


Made out of this:


Turned out like this:








It was my first time using leather like this but I love how it turned out.  Sure it's got a few mistakes here and there, but nothing too glaring I think.  I'm just excited that I can say that my very first genuine leather purse is upcycled and that I made it with my own two hands.  And a very reluctant sewing machine.

Thanks!  The lining was just some fabric I picked up at the fabric store.  The original lining was a dark brown but I wanted to have a nice pop of color when you opened the bag Smiley

That is an awesome upcycle! I think it's great that you were able to make something you were lusting over all by yourself
