Leather Drawstring Backpack

Designed a drawstring backpack that can be cut on a basic. Made from 4oz oil-tanned leather. My engraving ideas on this one were a fail :frowning: Luckily the end of the year leather sales make designing/experimenting new designs a lot less expensive!
My idea was to attach a dragon and flames in a contrasting color leather but after I attached them I thought it looked terrible so I pulled them off.
Luckily the backpack itself came out pretty good.
Pattern is available.

That looks so professional! It’s encouraging to know you can make “mistakes” and still pull off a WOW finished build.

Can’t wait to see what else you do.

That looks amazing. I really need to work in leather, I have only done the obligatory wallet then never made anything else. LOL

You might not want to try something else! I started with a wallet then a bag and now I’m addicted! I get so much satisfaction from seeing an idea come to life.

That’s a great design and your stitching :star_struck:!

Thanks! But, my stitching only looks good because of the laser. I could never make the holes with a punch as straight.

Wow! What a fantastic bag. I really like the red stitches too, the bead on the pull, and other findings.
