Making a Small Leather Women's Backpack - Using Tandy's New Kaleidoscope Leather

Posted by on

Whit and I are far more accustomed to making bags using saddle and tack leather like skirting, harness, bridle, and tooling. But we've had an itch to work with some softer, more lush leather. And with the best timing ever, Tandy reached out to us to do a DIY leather zipper bag tutorial video on their new Kaleidoscope leather which is exactly what we were looking for. It's lush, it's soft, it has a really nice hand and was a total treat to work with. And with 389 different colors to choose from, you'll definitely find something you'll love.
