Hi all! I finished this bag up a couple of weeks ago. I used my Glowforge to cut out the D-ring and strap tabs, handle parts, and engrave and cut the monogram on the back. Using the laser is a such a huge time saver as I used to cut these small complicated bits by hand. I love the accuracy and being able to design and create within minutes.
Wow, that is a really nice laptop bag!
You did a great job! I love all the stitching around the edges too. It looks really professional.
Just started into leather projects myself, this is really inspiring, thanks for the share!
Wonderful work! I think you have the leather work nailed!
That is a beautiful bag. Nice work. You also have a very nice web site.
There you go again, making super awesome leather goods. I just love the sleek design of this one.
That is stunning. Well done.
Labor of love—-gorgeous!!
Your bag is really nice. Looks like one from an expensive boutique.
Oh, my! That is so beautiful!
What craftsmanship and attention to every tiny detail! You are very talented!
Do you have a special sewing machine to put your bags together?
Gorgeous! If I wasn’t retired, I’d like a bag like that for my ‘puter
Thanks! Yes, I think the stitching should go all around the flap too as it looks finished that way. This thing will look even better as it gets patina too it.
Have fun! Once you start you can’t stop! lol Check out my Instagram for more: https://www.instagram.com/blackthornleather/
Thanks! I hope so, I quit my day job three years ago to do this full time.
Thank you so much! The handle and small bits were hand stitched and the body was done with my Cobra Class 4 leather machine.
Can’t stop won’t stop! lol My favorite part is using the brand that was on the hide. You can see it on the backside towards the bottom.
It’s a FEATURE!
