Leather+Felt Bag

I've been seeing the use of industrial felt for accessories trend popping up in shops 
and on blogs, and fell a little bit in love with the pairing of grey felt with brown leather. 
I've been coveting one of these bags for a while, but since every one 
I came across was out of my price range, I decided to make one for myself.
Never having made a purse before, and not having much experience working 
with leather, it was a bit of an adventure. From learning how to install rivets 
to figuring out how to create the lining - which is made out of a beautiful 
cotton canvas - the entire bag was sewn by hand, without a pattern.
And I must say I am very pleased with how it turned out!


  1. Nice. Such a great color and texture combo.

  2. This is amazing, Nadia. I'm so jealous of your talent!

  3. Very nice!
