It has been a while since the first part of the making-of of the ladies bag! Some of you might have seen a little update on Instagram every now and then. But since it takes a lot of (spare) time to make the bag you might have been waiting for the next part, so here it is! Definitely not yet finished but we have made some progress since the previous making-of post, it’s here in case you’ve missed it.
All right, let’s continue
While making this bag I’m implementing different new techniques such as the reinforcement of the front, back and top. How to do this has already been explained in a previous ‘Pure leather-post’. Since this wasn’t the only new technique, I had to do a lot of research and make some test-items from scrap leather. But I think I’ve created an interior of a bag… It is like a complete bag but to put inside the outer bag. Do you still follow me…. Well, let’s see some photo’s of my progress so far!
Right now it is time to work on the handles, I will integrate the techniques I’ve analysed in the ‘how to handle series’ (part I, part II, part III). But that’s for the next making-of post! Besides the handles, I will also put a big twist lock on it! How to do this … well, I will give you an update whenever I know ;)!
As soon as possible I will show you the final steps and the final result of the ladies bag. In the meantime stay tuned for much and much more Leather & Style!!
