MAKING A WOMEN'S LEATHER TOTE BAG

Posted by on

 

Today we are making a simple women's leather tote bag with a leather liner. Park had said on a previous video we are used to making bags using saddle and tack leather like skirting, harness, bridle, and tooling. But we've been wanting to try out something new and expand our skills in different areas. The tote bag pattern was extremely simple and I have put the dimensions below if you want to try this tote bag out as well with a nice little liner. Be Kind to me as this was the first bag I have stitched and designed all by myself. I have been doing leatherwork for about 4-5 years but this machine stitching is new to me (especially with Park not being in the shop with me) and Park is the better designer out of the two of us but we make a good deal.

I made my template with a white poster board with the dimensions listed below -

Dimensions of the bag template
*Main Body - 26 x 16
*Side Panels - 26 x 4
*Bottom Panels - 16 x 4
Strap Length - 30" Long by 3/4" Wide
Strap/Bag Overlap - 3'

  • Nice job and gorgeous family, just retiring from 25 years of firefighting, wife says I better get a hobby. Always been curious of how leather goods were made so guess what, just dumped a couple bills on leather and basic equipment (I’m sure nothing compared to what I see in your videos). I’ve learned over 25 years of ff’ing, you can only be as good as your tools. My ideas for leather are more utilitarian maybe a badge holder wallet or radio/cell phone strap or custom belt/ tool holder etc. I would love to see something like that be made? Although I haven’t purchased anything from you ..yet, I have gained a great deal of knowledge from you and your videos and I hope to be able to get to your level someday. Imitation is the highest flattery. Again you guys are doing a great job and I wish you nothing but the best. Be Safe, Brian, Someday maybe B’s belts!
