The Idea: A Simple, Hand-Stitched Design
The idea was to create a bag to hold a 15″ laptop, a graphics tablet, a small camera, lenses, and other smaller things. It had to be a simple, hand-stitched design using 6-7 oz vegetable-tanned leather.
I didn’t want to add any stiffeners, lining, or hardware in order to keep the design simple.
The First Stage: Planning And Pattern Making
- Initial Sketch, Rough measurements, and idea for the diagonal lines.
- Made a pattern out of paper
- The front pocket will change later. This design did not work with the thick leather I used. The
Second Stage: Cutting & Sewing
- Used the pattern to cut the leather
- This is the pattern on some 6-7oz leather.
Dyed The Leather Black
The next one will have to be naturally tan colored.
Sewn On The Small Front Pocket
The small pocket in the front is now a wet-molded pocket instead of the design from the paper version. It’s very small and meant to only fit a small wallet or cables.
Sewn The Sides To The Front: The Bag Is Taking Shape.
At this point, I’m still not sure if the bag will fit together.
Thank you for understanding.
