Making a Leather Zip Top Backpack - Horween Natural Essex || DIY VIDEO

Posted by on

I've been wanting to make a zip top leather backpack for a while now, and I happened to have a beautiful hide of Natural Essex by Horween sitting in my shop and I knew this would be the perfect project for it. You can pick up the tools/supplies and leather that I used in this DIY leather backpack project down below.
