This leather and fabric handbag is the perfect project for those who are starting to sew with leather and for those who are bored with fabric only handbags. You can make this with a normal domestic sewing machine so don't be afraid to give it a try!
If you don't feel like trying with leather, you can also use vinyl, oilcloth, canvas or another heavy fabric. I just wanted to try with leather and it came out so well.
Skill level This project suits someone with advanced beginner to intermediate skills. If you have made another handbag from our website, you will find this project very easy.
