Monochromatic Log Cabin Leather Tote


A monochromatic log cabin design in soft cowhide gives the pattern a modern yet relaxed vibe. 

To make the bag, stitch together an 8-by-5 1/2-inch rectangle and 3-inch-wide strips using a leather needle and heavy-duty thread. Be sure to increase the stitch length to avoid perforating the leather. Add a strap of natural canvas. If you like, you can sew a matching lining.

    I have upholstery sample books, which I took apart to use in a craft. Will use this rather than faux leather or leather. Easier to sew, looks will be beautiful.
