This wasn’t really a planned project, just something that I ended up making because I was hopped up from too much caffeine and in the mood to sew. I had a small chunk of this leather left, and I tried to utilize it as efficiently as I could to leave as little wastage as possible. Thus, the simple but practical box bag.
Working in front of the laptop and sewing for around ten hours straight, well into the next morning (5am, if I remember right).
Preparing the leather before all the actual stitching actually takes the most time. When I get to the stitching part, it’s much more mechanical
Rounded corners are tougher to sew
Drunk on caffeine but my stitches are straight. Hell yeah.

Inside is unlined, clean, and simple.
Attached the straps to the bag via grommets when I went back to school the following day
