And I came up with this idea:
|Joel Dewberry's Swallow Study in Forest Home Dec Sateen|
with tan leather
It is a medium sized bag: about 15 inches wide at the widest part, 10 inches high in the center and about 4 inches deep. The strap is adjustable so the bag can be worn over one shoulder or cross body. Attaching the strap does require leather or faux leather with finished edges and some metal rivets. The bag itself is sewn the same way as a very large zipper pouch so the strap is attached in the very last step. I also love tassels so I thought a leather tassel attached to the zipper pull would be a very nice touch.
Inside the bag are 3 slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket. The main closure is a metal YKK zipper.
A bag like this does take a long time to make (about 3 to 4 hours total) which explains the higher cost in comparison to my other bags.
I did make 3 of these in total but sadly ran out of rivets so I will need to wait to make more. Here are more photos for your viewing pleasure!
