Judith's DIY Leather Onbag

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

I'm so impressed with this bag!

I had thought of trying one in leather but I really don't have the skills or expertise for it...

Judith (who is also the author of the DIY instructions in Dutch) has made this with a lovely bright striped lining.

Judith says:

"I wasn't sure my sewing machine could make it through a few layers of leather but it worked out all just fine.

I had to make a few changes because leather is slightly different to work with and I had to change the measurements to fit the pattern for the peace of leahter I had available.

Because the onbag is a little smaller than the baby onbag (27x27 cm, straps 14cm wide) I assumed the purpose is different. I'm going to use it for citytrips (not a whole day, just one or two hours)

I left away the sidepocket and loops because of this changed purpose (and I like to backcarry my daugthers)."

It is so great to have such talented designers and seamstresses from all over the world contributing to this design.  I am overwhelmed by the creativity and talent which is pouring in from all directions!
