New Bag



This is a single shot bag that I just completed for a gentlemen. It is made from 2-3 oz. veg tanned leather, hand stitched with linen thread. He requested that it have a small inside pocket and some tooling done on the flap.
The bag is seven inches wide and six and half inches deep with a inch and half  wide gusset added, all seam are welted also. The strap is one inch wide with a forged buckle, brass button closer.
