Beginner's leather satchel course

Leather satchel

About the Course

Impress your friends by making your own leather satchel! This is a beautiful and classic style and by far the most popular of our courses. It is a perfect bag to take with you when out & about and easily fits a wallet, mobile phone, keys and sunglasses! The dimensions of the final product are approx. 15cm high x 20cm wide x 7cm deep.

You won't need a sewing machine as the handbag will be stitched by hand.
