Here's a great place to learn (other than Craftster, of course) about sewing in general, but this should link you to a sewing with leather specifically

Okay, that didn't work ... Huccome?


Well, go to Sewing Pattern Review and in the search area, enter "Leather"

Try this:

I have this pattern, but haven't attempted it yet. But it looks neat.
AngelFire Designs http://angelfiredesigns.com/Accessories.html calls them Japanese Shoulder bags.
I've seen them also called "Ameribag: The Healthy Back Bag" (It makes your back healthier by emptying out your wallet of all that heavy money: A Small one starts at $45...)

Hope this helps.

I saw this bag at Zumiez, and I refuse to pay money for it when I am more than capable of doing it myself.
I'm new at sewing, and I don't know how to just make my own pattern.

Can you point me in the right direction? It's a fairly simple bag, but I do well with directions.

I would like to try and make a bag similar to this

Is there any way I can make something like this? If so what material should I use and how do I go about putting it together? Thanks!    Cheesy

Ok, this is how I'd draft a quick pattern for that one:
I'd prepare the pieces for a patter of a rectangular tote of the required size.
Then I'd put together the front and the gusset piece on the side with cellotape and correct the side line by drawing on them that curved seamline that's this model's feature.
Then I'd cut through that line and here are the pieces for this pattern!

I have tried to find an origami diagram for a purse and wallet and i cant really find it. Does anyone have a diagram for pieces like these?


I know Glenda from fabric origami had the diagrams for sale but she doesnt ship them overseas and she doesnt have these ones on her page now. /cry

Thanks in advance

Hi there!

I'm trying to sew a leather bi-fold wallet for a good friend of mine. He's a pretty low-maintenance guy, has been using the same wallet for several years now, but it's almost disintegrated by now - so I want to make him one for Christmas!

What I need to know (I've never sewn a wallet before):

- What kind of leather is best for a durable men's wallet?
- Where can I find a Canadian supplier for leather?
- Is there a simple men's bi-fold wallet pattern that I can follow?

Any help is appreciated - thanks!

Having decided to go back to school (...again) I am going to be spending a lot of time in the library, researching as well as reading for fun.  I have a backpack (actually, several because I like to mix and match) but the valuable real estate in there is taken up by my textbooks, laptop, etc.  I also don't want to have to lug the backpack around when I don't really need it.  So I want to make a library tote.  I've made lots of totes before, but I kind of want this one to be special.

Do you fabulous Craftsters have any suggestions or must-do ideas for a library-worthy tote?  Style, accessories, fabrics, techniques, etc...I'm open to it all!

Thank you!

I'd go with a plain old zippered pouch.  You can add a little wrist handle to make it more purse like.  But if you can sew in a zipper, it doesn't get much easier than the square pouch.  Plus you can use fun or fancy fabric and embellish it to make it look more special for the kids.

You can put the kittens in the oven; but that don't make 'em biscuits.

I want to make a bento bag like this one -


That is free or really cheap.  Does anybody know where I can find such a pattern?

I am taking a break from swaps for a while.  I am not accepting any personal swaps at this time until around Christmas time.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
