Hi and welcome to my shop!

DIGITAL PRODUCT

  • This package contains the PDF pattern and link to a detailed video tutorial that will walk you through the process of making a leather briefcase lined with leather and stiffener.
  • The advantage of lining is that you obtain a sturdy bag that will keep its shape over the years.
  • It also allows you to use thinner leather that will ensure the bag is lightweight.
  • Featuring adjustable strap and handle, this bag can be used as a briefcase, laptop bag or messenger bag.
  • The bag contains an interior sleeve with a pocket.

It is suitable for 14", 15" and 16" laptops.
