My first genuine (part) leather bag

It was easier than I expected, even on an old sewing machine! You just have to take is very, very easy and forget about pins!

The leather came from one of my sister's old 90's leather skirts. Beautifully soft leather. I have combined it with linen and cotton in a similar colour scheme. The bag has a Gladstone hinge frame as a closure and a front pocket which closes with a snap button. Inside there are 3 slip pockets, one large one and two smaller ones.
